Elkins, Charles. "E. M. Forster's 'The Machine Stops': Liberal-Humanist Hostility to Technology." CW -61.
"The Machine Stops" as an early and significant example of the "antagonism toward science and technology . . . registered in the works of practically all of the leading writers of the period" (49). Esp. interesting on alienation in a world mediated by technology and the bureaucracy required by technology (56). See below, this Category, entry for E. Goodheart.
