Resumen del libro

Saint Thomas More's Utopia is one of the most important works of European humanism and serves as a key text in survey courses on Western intellectual history, the Renaissance, political theory, and many other subjects. Preeminent More scholar Clarence H. Miller does justice to the full range of More's rhetoric in this masterful translation. In a new afterword to this edition, Jerry Harp contextualizes More's life and Utopia within the wider frames of European humanism and the Renaissance.
"Miller's translation . . . will likely supersede all others as a classroom text and as an essential item in the libraries of Renaissance scholars."-Choice

"Clarence Miller has made a lively and accurate translation which preserves the subtlety and wit of More's own Latin. Fluent and highly readable, this new version should be welcomed by all admirers of the Utopia."-Louis Martz, Yale University Contributors?Clarence H. Miller, Emeritus Professor of English Literature at St. Louis University, served as executive editor of the fifteen-volume Yale Edition of The Complete Works of St. Thomas More. Jerry Harp, a poet and a Renaissance scholar, is assistant professor of English at Lewis and Clark College. Quotes?"This translation offers a fresh and vital encounter with Thomas More's Utopia for a twenty-first century audience."-Elizabeth McCutcheon, Utopian Studies
