Book Description

January 3, 1999 087220376X 978-0872203761
Wootton's new translation brings out the liveliness of More's work and offers an accurate and reliable version of a masterpiece of social theory. His edition is further distinguished by the inclusion of a translation of Erasmus's "The Sileni of Alcibiades", a work very close in sentiment to Utopia, and one immensely influential in the sixteenth century. This attractive combination suits the edition especially well for use in Renaissance and Reformation courses as well as for Western Civilization survey courses. Wootton's Introduction simultaneously provides a remarkably useful guide to anyone's first reading of More's mysterious work and advances an original argument on the origins and purposes of Utopia which no one interested in sixteenth-century social theory will want to miss.

Editorial Reviews


"This [Hackett Publishing Company] edition of Utopia seems to me just right! The edition's introduction is brisk and intelligent and at the same time nicely calculated to reach an average student who, most likely, does not know any history or geography. The addition of the "Sileni of Alcibiades" is a stroke of genius. I shall be using your edition in preference to the . . . edition in my courses. The price is fair as well."(George Huppert, University of Illinois at Chicago)

"An excellent and highly readable translation [Hackett Publishing Company] coupled with helpful but not overwhelming notes. The inclusion of "The Sileni of Alcibiades" should prove valuable to the average student. The introduction covers a great deal of ground in only 34 pages and should prepare students well in survey courses. A great deal of value for only $6.95."(Dan O'Bryan, Sierra Nevada College)

"Wooton's edition of More's Utopia [Hackett Publishing Company] is quite simply the finest available." --Ted Stolze, Cal State Hayward

Purchased this book for a history class and enjoyed the connection to early Europe through the eyes of commoners rather than from those in the business of recording history via records or manuscripts.
