9781851967629: Late Victorian Utopias: A Prospectus, 6 Volume Set

Utopian writing exists at a juncture of literature, politics and science, making this edition a unique resource for the study of nineteenth-century society. The texts in this set offer an original interpretation of nineteenth-century culture by contemporary writers, providing new insights for modern researchers from both a literary and historical standpoint. This edition sets out to extend the utopian genre in order to allow a new understanding of both the genre and the late Victorian period. In literary terms, our collection calls for a complete overhaul of existing assumptions about utopian writing in this era. William Morris's News from Nowhere (1890), has until now been held up as the representative example of Victorian utopian writing. The variety of texts within these volumes reveals, however, that the Morris text is far from typical of the works of the era, as most utopias do not involve the revival of a medieval ethos, but instead rely on the future discovery or invention of scientific and social schemes of improvement.

Product Description:

This collection of literary utopias calls for a complete overhaul of existing assumptions about utopian writing in this period. The representation of utopian texts in these volumes shows that William Morris is far from "representative" of basic trends in the genre in this era.
