In Thomas More's hugely influential Utopia, a traveller recounts his discovery of an island nation in which the inhabitants enjoy unprecedented social cohesion and justice. The book imagines a community in which laws, personal relations and professional ambition are based on reason, in contrast with the tradition-bound superstitions of Europe, 2/5(1). Utopia was not always an island, Hythloday says, nor was it always called Utopia. Its first name was Abraxa, perhaps meaning “Holy Name,” “without breeches,” or “waterless.” Utopus, the conqueror of the place and the founder of Utopia itself, civilized the natives of Abraxa and had them, along with his own soldiers, cut up and dig away the fifteen miles of ground that connected.

Summary. Book 1 of Utopia is subtitled "First Book of the Discussion Which the Exceptional Man Raphael Hythloday Held Concerning the Best State of a Commonwealth, by Way of the Illustrious Man Thomas More, Citizen and Undersheriff of the Glorious City of London in Britain."This subtitle provides a clear overview of the events within the section. Book 1 is narrated by a fictionalized version of. In the near future Earth has recovered from the climate crisis. But in the far future an inexorable threat approaches, itself a relic of the deep past, and of the World Engines that created the planets.

The accounts given by returning explorers of primitive societies in those newfound lands did not furnish More with the overall pattern for his civilized Utopia, but certain aspects of those "noble savages" did find a place in his book, notably the absence of private property and of money. Book Two of Utopia is presented to the reader as a direct discourse on various aspects of Utopian society. It is, however, important to remember the fictional frame in which this discourse exists. Book Two is in fact More's paraphrase of Hythloday's description of Utopia. Between Thomas More the author and Hythloday the teller of the story is a Missing: Utopia hunters.
