Seeing how the future was envisioned in the 17th century here has an interesting overlay of comparing how a similar story envisions the future when it comes to this story and the various versions of Planet of the Apes we've had. They're not the same story, sure, but there are enough parallels to make the occasional comparison about how each sees our place in the world, and how the author sees the future looking.
