This story gets stranger and stranger. It was great to read about the decaying museum. For me, it really illustrated how transient items deemed important truly are. The traveller is repulsed by the life of the Morlocks, but appears to view the others as amusing subjects. I'm not sure he sees humanity in either although he calls them descendants.

When he loses Meena, he blames the Morlocks instead of himself. He out them in danger by his decisions, yet it never enters the traveler's mind. Where is his responsibility in all of this?
