Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Thomas Mores Utopia is one of the supreme achievements of Renaissance humanism. His complex and ironic account of an imaginary communist society has not only given rise to the genre of utopian fiction but has been an inspiration to generations of political reformers. The present edition differs from other English-language editions in that it includes all the ancillary materials that were included, at Mores behest, in the early editions (encompassing letters and poems on Utopia by More and several of his humanist associates), in that it presents a new version of the highly-regarded translation by Robert M. Adams, and in that its introductory materials and annotations assimilate important recent scholarship.

Synopsis:

First published in 1516, Thomas More's \[I\]Utopia\[/I\] is one of the most influential books in the Western philosophical and literary tradition and one of the supreme achievements of Renaissance humanism. More's complexly ironic account of an imaginary communist society gave rise to the genre of utopian fiction and has been an inspiration to generations of political reformers. After nearly five centuries \[I\]Utopia\[/I\] continues to provoke interest and debate among students and scholars. This edition presents a new version of the highly regarded translation by Robert M. Adams and assimilates important recent scholarship in its introductory materials.
