In The Island of Dr. Moreau by H. G. Wells, the protagonist, Edward Prendick, finds himself shipwrecked in the ocean. After being rescued by a ship, he is told they are bound for an unnamed island where Prendick learns of Dr. Moreau, a cold and precise man who conducts research on the island. ? ?When the novel was written in the late 19th century (1896), European society was absorbed with concerns about degeneration, and Britain's scientific community was engulfed by debates on animal vivisection.
