The Utopia Megapack
20 Classic Utopian and Dystopian WorkseBook - 2014
Utopia. A community or society possessing highly desirable or nearly perfect qualities. It may be a dream, but it's a dream that has inspired writers for thousands of years. Plato's Republic may be the very first utopia presented to a mass audience, but Thomas More coined the term with his 1516 book Utopia (included here), which describes a fictional island society in the Atlantic Ocean. The term (and its antonym, dystopia) quickly entered the English language. And here are 19 other works, famous and not, featuring utopias and dystopias...works by Samuel Butler, Charlotte Perkins Gilman, Anna Bowman Dodd, William Morris, Sir Francis Bacon, and many others.Included are: EREWHON, by Samuel Butler MOVING THE MOUNTAIN, by Charlotte Perkins Gilman HERLAND, by Charlotte Perkins Gilman EQUALITY, by Edward Bellamy CAESAR'S COLUMN, by Ignatius Donnelly THE REPUBLIC OF THE FUTURE, by Anna Bowman Dodd, A CRYSTAL AGE, by W.
