THE ISLAND OF DR. MOREAU by H.G. Wells is Well's 1896 personification of the scientific quest to control the natural world and ultimately human nature through the tale of a surgeon on a remote island who performs experiments that transform animals into men. Made into movies several times, the novel deals with the themes of pain, cruelty, moral responsibility, human identity and human's attempts to interfere with nature.
