Baker (English, Rutgers U.) examines the 16th-century humanist movement in England, tracing the reception of Sir Thomas More's Utopia (1516) in relation to it. He argues that humanists of the English Renaissance were themselves reading More's Utopia, Erasmus's Praise of Folly, and other works of Continental humanism in much more politically radical ways than scholars have generally recognized.
