About the blog

I became interested in utopian literature after reading Thomas More’s Utopia about a year ago and realising, from the introduction of the book, that a whole canon of literature followed on from More’s lead as writers fictionalised their ideas of a perfect society. The more I read about utopian and dystopian literature, the more I realised what an important role the idea of Utopia has had in society from before More to the present day. This blog will attempt to follow my exploration of this genre as I learn more from the individual texts and read about the idea itself.
