    According to wikipedia the Russian title varoiusly is:
    "О дивный новый мир," "О дивный новый мир!," or "Прекрасный новый мир," with the first variant listed presumably being the most prevalent.

    ссылка: http://ru.wikipedia.org/wiki/%D0%9E_%D0 ... 0%D0%BD%29

    How does the word "meilleur" translate into English, Mordan, do you know?
    Заранее благодарю всех за исправление ошибок в моём русском.

    The adjective brave in this saying doesn't mean courageaous but better. It would sound weird to say "le meilleur nouveau monde", don't you think?
    So in French "le meilleur des mondes" simply means a better one amongst the others already in place which describes the meaning of "brave new world".

    I disagree. If I remember the Savage John says at one time "oh brave new world"
    Besides "meilleur" is superlative like best, and better is just relative

    huh actually meilleur is also relative but that's advanced subtle meaning
