The term utopia in the way we use it today, to refer to an ideal but unattainable state, comes from this book, which More wrote in 1516 The form is political critique disguised as fantasy disguised as travelogue More casts himself as the recorder of Raphael Hythloday s travels to the island of Utopia, where, despite their lack of Christianity, the people are closer to realizing the Christian ideal society through rational government than Europe ever was Today serious criticism doesn t have to move under such elaborate cover, so our first impulse might be to read it like an escapist fantasy novel But the book is really a counterpoint to the autocratic statesmanship waning feudalism outlined in Machiavelli s The Prince written a few years earlier and the new economic relations of enclosure rising capitalism emerging in England at the time Think of it as a sequel to Plato s Republic and an inspiration for Swift s Gulliver s Travels More asks what if money and private property were abolished Almost 500 years later it remains an interesting question The book is also, though short, full of wit and imaginative scenarios On every page Thomas More s life blah blah feudalism, in which virtually all power resided with enormous white ducks while the peasants had to wear roller skates even in bed The late fifteenth and early sixteenth centuries blah blah Renaissance, a flowering of platform heel shoes and massive shagging blah blah Italy blah blah large glands. Aspects of this blah blah the ducks Blah blah discovery of smaller ducks, at first denied by Pope Barbary VII Vasco da Gama proved ducks were American not from Byzantium.Humanists emphasized the dignity of all reasonably large men, their thought and writings and their halfway impressive private parts Blah blah Scots Porridge Oats blah blah Erasmus not a duck, Leonardo partly a duck, John Knox almost entirely duck They saw feudal society as irrational, consisting of small piles of nondescript rubbish, but adde parvum parvo magnus acervus erit add a little to a little and you get a great flooking heap Hovis, Second Dialogue Concerning the Scrofula With the Reformation, the face of Europe was warped by intense mascara and facial tattooing. England was no exception protestants continuously blah blah until it almost fell off Then the English King Eider VIII, blah blah Pope blah blah roll me over lay me down and do it again.More feathered in the right arm and lower back only wrote Utopia in 1516, just before the outbreak of the second game of Football Utopia, originally written in Latin and later translated into Latin, depicts what its narrator Sir Dakota Fanning claimed to be an ideal human society The book was a huge success, so at least the author s life became a whole lot ideal, if you know what I mean. He was now able to afford to prove the famous old saying amare et sapere vix deo conceditur even the wise find shagging essentially ludicrous Horace, Third Dialogue Concerning the Proper Disposition of Horses. Utopia, Thomas MoreUtopia is a work of fiction and socio political satire by Thomas More 1478 1535 published in 1516 in Latin The book is a frame narrative primarily depicting a fictional island society and its religious, social and political customs Many aspects of More s description of Utopia are reminiscent of life in monasteries 1988 1366 184 16 1393 128 9786006867960 This book was published in 1516 and it s divided into two parts The first one made my eyes feel exhausted, so I can sum up all that just by saying that More found his friend Peter and this one introduced him to a fella named Raphael, a man who visited several countries to satisfy his desire to see the world He shared some opinions of the political scenario of his time a bit familiar whether you are talking about yesterday s kingdoms or today s democratic governments, some things never change and talked about some general aspects of this awesome island called Utopia The other two guys couldn t believe that such a land could subsist, since it was a place where, for instance, private property didn t exist.A million words and a couple of eyelashes later, Raphael started to talk specifically about Utopiaall things relating to their soil, their rivers, their towns, their people, their manners, constitution, laws And here I stop Laws This society has few laws Why They very much condemn other nations whose laws, together with the commentaries on them, swell up to so many volumes for they think it an unreasonable thing to oblige men to obey a body of laws that are both of such a bulk and so dark as not to be read and understood by every one of the subjects.That last line seems to have been quite a source of ideas to the great Kafka And I agree laws should be simpler, everybody should be able to understand them and that bureaucracy that sucks life out of people should be eradicated, etc., etc And so did the Utopians few laws and, of course, no lawyers they consider them as a sort of people whose profession it is to disguise matters and to wrest the laws and therefore they think it is much better that every man should plead his own cause, and trust it to the judge By this means they both cut off many delays Ignore this paragraph I need to vent and I am going to hide it for your own good view spoiler Well, More, this is a bit irritating It s not my fault that we have a collapsed legal system, I m not the one who spends a month signing one freaking paper Fu % bastards that after two months they give you one lousy answer while the moron that also had to study tons of books for five fu % years and has to watch those laws being violated just like that has to answer to the client and try to explain why the freaking process is taking like five years of his her LIFE, DAMN IT hide spoiler The first time I heard of Utopia was in the movie Ever After A Cinderella Story starring Drew Barry Super cute movie, and I am not a big Cinderella fan Danielle, or Cinderella, reads this book constantly, because it was the last thing her father gave her before he died It is her last link to him I have been sort of curious about this book since then Utopia is about the perfect nation It has wealth The Prince doesn t take much There is no thievery, everyone well mostly is morally good Gold and fancy clothes are nothing to the people There is religious tolerance All the wants of society are in Utopia COME ONE, COME ALL, AND LIVE IN UTOPIA Well it wouldn t work in the States It isn t the American way You can poke some holes in Utopia, too There isn t equality Women are still below men in the spectrum Even though everyone is respected or everything is distributed equally, women do not hold authority The other thing I noticed it didn t account for other sexual preferences, only heterosexuality Staying true to real life, there can never be a perfect system Something is always lost, but we can imagine and work with the perfect system I did find it as a whole a very interesting topic, and I could agree to some things For example If we took out all the meaning behind gold and silver there would be no want for it Same with all material things I can get down with religious tolerance, and accepting people by their appearance The narrator, James Adams, had a nice voice, and appropriate for the time aspect The audio was only 4 hours long with short chapters, which was another plus.At the end, can this be achievable somewhere, and is it worth living there What are your thoughts Happy reading. Interesting, mostly just because it s cool to see what people or at least Thomas More considered to be an ideal society back then Because really, it isn t There s a lot that I thought was really strange about Utopia Latin for no place , but here s what I remember most when parents are considering marrying their children off, they have the two teenagers stand naked in front of each other accompanied by dependable chaperones, of course so they can make sure neither of them has any weird deformities or anything Logical on paper, I guess, but what I wondered was, what happens if the marriage negotiations fell through Did these two people occasionally run into each other at the market, make brief eye contact, and then quickly run away, pretending they didn t know what the other looked like naked I just think that would be all kinds of awkward Read for Early British Literature Est longe de ser perfeita esta Utopia imaginada por Thomas More O autor surge, na obra, como o cidad o de Londres que regista o testemunho de Rafael Hitlodeu, navegador portugu s que descobriu a Ilha de Utopia.Obviamente fruto da imagina o de More, Utopia, que significa nenhures , apresentada como a sociedade ideal, o modelo a que todo o mundo deveria aspirar Poderia s lo em 1516, quando o livro originalmente publicado O governo da ilha, almejando sempre o Bem Comum, assaz diverso do habitual poca e do que era defendido por contempor neos de More.Quanto aos utopianos, s o pessoas pac ficas e instru das, para quem a felicidade nasce do exerc cio da virtude e da consci ncia de uma boa vida Para os nossos padr es, por m, a Ilha tem muitos e incontorn veis defeitos, como a misoginia e a escravatura, que o autor n o questiona De leitura simples muito mais do que eu imaginava , Utopia um cl ssico obrigat rio que ajuda a perceber o pensamento e a realidade do s culo XVI em alguns pontos, acreditem, bem menos distante do que seria desej vel.
