- Brief Candles is also the title of a fantasy novel by Manning Coles
Brief Candles (1930), Aldous Huxley's fifth collection of short fiction, consists of the following four short stories:
- "The Rest Cure"
- "The Claxtons"
- "After the Fireworks"
It takes its title from a line in William Shakespeare's Macbeth, from Macbeth's famous soliloquy: "Out, out, brief candle! Life's but a walking shadow, a poor player that struts and frets his hour upon the stage and then is heard no more: it is a tale told by an idiot, full of sound and fury, signifying nothing."
