Readers may find themselves wishing they could live on the island described in Sir Thomas More’s 1516 work Utopia. More describes this wondrous island as a philosophical and political meditation on what the world could be like if it were a perfect expression of man’s ideals. In his fictional society, all are free from the hardships that we, in the everyday world, must face. Imagine a world without poverty or unhappiness, a place where all are welcome, where wars never rage. All of the ills of human society disappear, and people are free to enjoy a life of satisfaction, joy, and abundance. Utopia has provided rich food for thought for many people over the span of its four centuries in publication. More’s work has inspired many to try to live the dream he described—and many to dream of the day when his vision might become reality.
