Overview

Thomas More's Utopia is one of the supreme achievements of Renaissance humanism. This is the first edition since 1965 to combine More's Latin text with an English translation, and the first to provide an accurate Latin text. Spelling and punctuation have been regularized, and the translation is a revised version of the acclaimed Adams translation, also published in Cambridge Texts in the History of Political Thought. The edition includes an introduction, textual apparatus, a full commentary and a guide to the critical literature on Utopia.

Since its publication in 1516, Utopia has provoked a hailstorm of debate. The minute details More ascribed to his "perfect world" make Utopia still a work of the future.

    Readable and Enjoyable

    Thomas More's Utopia was an assigned text in a class I am taking; the professor assigned the Dover edition but when the bookstore failed to get it in on time, we had to read an online edition of the text. The online edition was not only poorly translated and difficult to follow but full of typos; so I went looking in the library for a better version and found this one. The English translation in this edition is easy to read and understand, yet in comparing it to the Latin orinal given in this edition, I've found that it is also much truer to the original than the online version! The commentary also was a great help; and overall, it was simply a much more enjoyable experience than the online text. If you're going to read Utopia, I highly recommend this edition of it.
