The Eloi – Arace of sweet, innocent and child like people.
Weena – She was one of the Eloi
The Morlocks – They were a race of cannibals who raised the Eloi, like
cattle for food.
In the beginning of the story the Time Traveler, Filby and some fo their
friends were talking about space and time dimension. He showed them a working
model of the time machine and gave them a demonstration.
When they left the Time Traveler went ito his labto get into his time
machine. He stepped into the time machine sat down. He slowly pushed the lever
forward to go ahed in time, as he got used to the controls he went faster.
Through a window he saw he saw everything happening faster and a dial told him
the date. The mannequin in the window also showed him the changing times.
As he traveled through time he slowed down to take a closer look at the
changes that were taking place, but he never left his lab. Finally hestoped when
he saw a White Sphinx with wings that made it look like it was hovering. He
stopped to fasted and the time machine fell on its’ side and he had to pull it
up by a bar onit’s side.
He was walking through a forest with trees filled with fruit, until he
came to a large round building. Inside the bulding there was nothing but tables
with bowls of fruit on them. He went utside to a riverthere he save Weena from
drowning, this was his first encounter with the Eloi. The Eloi were simpel
people who were dependent on the Morlocks for food and clothing.
When he returned to the White Spinx his time machine was gone. The Time
traveler saw that there were tracks on the ground, made by his time machine. At
this time he noticed the tracks led behind the bronze doorsof the Sphinx which
was actually a gateway to the Morlocks subterranean city.
