It's nice to finally have something concrete to associate with the term "utopia" beyond just the typical fantastical ravings of the curious mind. Both thought provoking and fascinating to consider in terms of what this work is as a work of fiction, "Utopia" falls somewhere between easy and difficult...

Its a bit surprising that I have not read Utopia. The work especially the first half of it, which recounts a dinner party and is only indirectly about the land of Utopia is quite charming. I was surprised about quite how breezy and easy to read it was. It reads almost like a satire, but in revers...

For those of you that know your history or at least watched the tv show The Tudors, know that he opposed Henry VIII's separation from the Catholic church and refused to acknowledge him as Supreme Head of the Church of England. Because of this and some s...

Philosophical Musings of a Book Nerd
I was going to open this commentary with 'where no man has gone before' until I realised that the opening to Star Trek is actually 'Space, the final frontier' and then rambles on a bit more before saying 'to boldly go where no man has gone before'. You may be wondering why I am connecting a book wri...

The word "utopia" was coined by More for his book from Greek for "no" and "place." There's some controversy as to whether this work is meant as serious or satire. Given not just the name of no place but things like the explanation of why the island is not reachable (someone coughed when the location...

First off, Utopia is no place. This title perfectly fits the book, as their was no country (and still is not) that existed that was anything like the one in this book. There were some that had certain elements in common with Utopia, particularly the Incas (who redistributed food stored in public war...
