"Thomas More's Utopia, a book that will be 500 years old next year, is astonishingly radical stuff." -Terry Eagelton ; The Guardian

Utopia is a work of fiction and socio-political satire by Thomas More (1478-1535), written in Latin and published in 1516. The book is a frame narrative primarily depicting a fictional island society and its religious, social, and political customs.

One of the most troublesome questions about Utopia is Thomas More's reason for writing it. Most scholars see it as a comment on or criticism of 16th-century Catholicism. Some saw it as a criticism of the nobility and private property. And others argue the people that live in Utopia were an example of how pleasure has become their guiding principle of life.
