Hi, need to submit a 750 words paper on the topic Book War with the Newts by Karel Capek Summary. Newts – is a collective image. In the first book of the novel the newts are just a sensational novelty. The narrative starts in the spirit of a typical suspense, adventure novel, with the motive of nature mysteries. Relic animals is a beneficial subject for science fiction: Captain van Toch, on a certain island, finds unusual animals – of the size of a small child, with a tail, blinking lower eyelids and front paws just like hands of a child, with four fingers on each only, but very clever and cute. The captain learns these lizards and they prove to be extremely intelligent and sensitive and very defenseless against sharks. The captain gives them knives, so they can open pearl shells and defend as well. Van Toch taught them to apply leverage, that is, gave them the first habits of work. An ordinary, innocent adventure novel slightly gets a little different accent. People, not noticing it even, begin to exploit the newts, but that exploitation was still of a romantic, adventurous shade. The prevailing tone of the first book is irony and humor. It gives a mosaic of pictures and scenes representing the history of acquaintance of mankind and newts. Newts settle down on the neighboring islands and, increasingly, imitate man – for example, learn to pronounce some simple words.
