Resumen del libro

Five hundred year anniversary edition of Thomas Mores Utopia, with new essays in response from Ursula K. Le Guin and an introduction by China Miéville

Five hundred years since its first publication, Thomas Mores astonishingly radical Utopia continues to shape utopian fiction today. 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. 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.

In this quincentenary edition, Mores text is introduced by award-winning fiction writer China Miéville, who explores the limits of todays utopias while insisting on the necessity of utopian thinking, and followed by essays from Ursula K. Le Guin, todays most distinguished utopian thinker, on her lifelong engagement with Mores project.
