About this title:

Synopsis: Several of the essays in this bok deal with the utopian genre itself - its characteristics and purposes, its affiliations with other genres such as satire and the novel, its unique formal demands. Other wssays are interpretive studeies which take into account most of the besk-known literary utopias and some fairly obscure examples of the kind.
