In the 1946 reprint of Brave New World, Aldous Huxley adds a foreword in which he discusses his novel. Huxley feels that a major defect in the work was that he limited the Savage to only two choices at the end, an insane life in Utopia or the life of a primitive in the Indian village. The choice is between insanity or lunacy, and the Savage finishes by choosing insanity, ending in his despairing suicide. Huxley feels that the choices are too limiting, and that sanity should be an option via "a society composed of freely co-operating individuals devoted to the pursuit of sanity."
