Sixteenth-century classic by brilliant humanist, churchman and scholar envisioned a patriarchal island kingdom that practiced religious tolerance, in which everybody worked, all goods were community-owned, and violence, bloodshed and vice were nonexistent. Forerunner of many later attempts at establishing "Utopias" both in theory and in practice.

Louis Martz

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.
