Utopian Moments

J.C. Davis

Publisher: Bloomsbury Publishing PLC

Format: Paperback

Within literature, history, politics, philosophy and theology, the interpretation of utopian ideals has evolved constantly. Juxtaposing historical views on utopian diagnoses, prescriptions and on the character and value of utopian thought with more modern interpretations, this volume explores how our ideal utopia has transformed over time.Challenging long-held interpretations, the contributors turn a fresh eye to canonical texts, and open them up to a twenty-first century audience. From Moore's “Utopia ”to Le Guin's “The Dispossessed,” “Utopian Moments ”puts forward a lively and accessible debate on the nature and significance of utopian thought and tradition.Each essay focuses on a key passage from the selected work using it to encourage both the specialist and the reader new to the field to read afresh. Written by an international team of leading scholars, the essays range from the sixteenth century to the present day and are designed to be both stimulating and accessible.
