In 1899, Dr. Alexander Hartdegen is a young inventor teaching at Columbia University in New York City. Unlike his conservative friend David Philby, Alexander would rather do pure research than work in the world of business. After a mugger kills his fiancée , Emma, he devotes himself to building a time machine that will allow him to travel back in time and save her. When he completes the machine four years later in 1903, he travels back to 1899 and prevents her murder, only to see her killed again when a horseless carriage frightens the horses of a horse-drawn vehicle , trampling her. [4]

After learning from Vox how to find the Morlocks, Alexander enters their underground lair through an opening that resembles the face in his nightmare. He is almost immediately captured and thrown into an area where Mara sits in a cage. There he meets an intelligent, humanoid Morlock, who explains that Morlocks are the evolutionary descendants of the humans who went underground after the Moon broke apart, while the Eloi are evolved from those who remained on the surface. The humanoid Morlocks are a caste of telepaths who rule the other Morlocks.

Finally accepting that he cannot save Emma, Alexander travels back to rescue Mara. After freeing her, he starts the time machine and jams its gears, creating a violent distortion in time. Though pursued by the Morlocks, Alexander and Mara escape to the surface as the time distortion explodes, killing the Morlocks and destroying their caves along with the time machine. Alexander begins a new life with Mara and the Eloi in 802,701.

The Time Traveler (hereafter known as "TT") tells an after-dinner group of men, including the narrator, that he has invented a Time Machine. He shows them a smaller prototype, and when he pulls a lever, it disappears--into the future, he claims. At the next week's dinner, the TT comes in midway through the meal, haggard and limping. He tells them of his eight days of time travel: The TT (now narrating the story) uses the Time Machine that morning and speeds forward through time. (Description of his journey will be recounted in present tense.)

The Palace of Green Porcelain turns out to be a ruined museum with objects from the TT's time and beyond. The TT finds an enormous room with huge, strange machines, and wonders if he can use them against the Morlocks. He notices that the gallery slopes downward into darkness. When he hears noises in the darkness similar to those from the well, he breaks off the lever of a machine. He restrains his desire to kill the Morlocks with his new "mace," as it may impede his progress in regaining the Time Machine. He finds a box of matches and a jar of flammable camphor. He does not find anything for breaking open the pedestal.

The Time Traveler is the protagonist of the story, and he takes over the narration from Chapter III until Chapter XII. He is a scientific man, schooled in contemporary theories about relativity and an able practitioner of the scientific method of...
