Item Description...
Presents the English statesman's classic denunciations of sixteenth-century tyranny and corruption and vision of an ideal society, along with historical and biographical notes.

Publishers Description
Here, More paints a vision of the customs and practices of a distant island, but Utopia means no place and his narrator's name, Hythlodaeus, translates as dispense of nonsense. This fantastical tale masks what is a serious and subversive analysis of the failings of More's society. Advocating instead a world in which there is religious tolerance, provision for the aged, and state ownership of land, Utopia has been variously claimed as a Catholic tract or an argument for communism and it still invites each generation to make its own interpretation.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
I thought this was supposed to be a new book  Feb 14, 2010
If that book was NEW, then every book I have read in the last 5 yrs is new, or is that what you call a book that has been read before repackaged and shipped
A Classic  Feb 6, 2010
Wow. There is a reason this is regarded as a classic piece of philosophy. Even though it is 500 years old, Paul Turner's translation (More originally wrote it in Latin), makes it positively a breeze to read. More's paradise, free from want and greed and pride, is a masterpiece, truly a joy to read. So many of the passages leaped off of the page and excited my brain. And Turner's footnotes are also excellent. Some of his historical notes illuminated the time and place, medieval Europe, in which More composed it. Some of those notes are stranger than fiction! Awesome, awesome read! If you are at all interested in philosophy then you must BUY IT! READ IT! Then share it with your friends and loved ones!
Utopia review by a BFS Middle School Student  Jan 23, 2010
I read this book for my middle school project.I liked the book, but it wasn't the best. In the beginning,it was a little boring, but once you start to get into the book you understand the character and the setting in which is in. I liked the letters which were written by Mr. Giles and in the introduction the author gives a lot of himself and how he created the book. There is also some strange lettering ,but that was fun to read too.
Penguin's Utopia translation--NOT UTOPIAN!  Oct 20, 2009
This semester the bookstore accidently ordered the Paul Turner Penguin translation of Thomas More's Utopia, and while I thought I loved everything Penguin did, this is the exception. It is almost unusable, especially in line with more traditional translations. Rather than just footnote and explain More's many Greek and Latin puns in More's fantasy place names, Turner comes up with his own words "Air City," etc. so that no one can relate it to the proper names everyone else uses (Amaurot, Anydis, etc.). Then, when More is talking about court jesters and fools (more' --a Latin pun on More's own name) Turner translates it in the politically correct, "mentally deficient" which again misleads. This translation is the least helpful I've experienced. Sad to report this, o beloved Penguin! I mean "waddling booker."

A masterpiece pure and simple  Sep 5, 2009
This is not only a great little book which you can read in less than a day, but an amazingly smart one that introduces first the idea of communism and socialism. There are some great insights by More such as the uselesness of luxury, and the injustices of abandoning people in old age. As in other books I have read by great minds, you are the better off for reading them, and would live a better life understanding these brilliant point of views. It's a shame that the Marxists misinterpreted this book, and actually tried to emulate the ideas which More himself did not intend, but nevertheless, five hundred years later, the lucidity and flow of this book are simply astonishing, reminding us the reason why some people are gone, but never forgotten.
