A major new translation of Thomas More's popular work of philosophical fiction
In his most famous and controversial book, Utopia, Thomas More imagines a perfect island nation where thousands live in peace and harmony, men and women are both educated, and all property is communal. Through dialogue and correspondence between the protagonist Raphael Hythloday and his friends and contemporaries, More explores the theories behind war, political disagreements, social quarrels, and wealth distribution and imagines the day-to-day lives of those citizens enjoying freedom from fear, oppression, violence, and suffering. Originally written in Latin, this vision of an ideal world is also a scathing satire of Europe in the sixteenth century and has been hugely influential since publication, shaping utopian fiction even today
About author:
Thomas More (1477/8–1535) was an English lawyer, philosopher, and statesman. In 1534 he was tried as a traitor at Westminster Hall for his refusal to accept the royal supremacy over the church and was later beheaded on Tower Hill. Pope Pius XI canonized him in 1935.
