Thomas More's life blah blah feudalism in which virtually all power resided with enormous white ducks while the peasants had to wear roller skates even in bed The late fifteenth and early sixteenth centuries blah blah Renaissance a flowering of platform heel shoes and massive shagging blah blah Italy blah blah large glands Aspects of this blah blah the ducks Blah blah discovery of smaller ducks at first denied by Pope Barbary VII Vasco da Gama proved ducks were American not from ByzantiumHumanists emphasized the dignity of all reasonably large men their thought and writings and their halfway impressive private parts Blah blah Scots Porridge Oats blah blah Erasmus not a duck Leonardo partly a duck John Knox almost entirely duck They saw feudal society as irrational consisting of small piles of nondescript rubbish but adde parvum parvo magnus acervus erit add a little to a little and you get a great flooking heap – Hovis “Second Dialogue Concerning the Scrofula” With the Reformation the face of Europe was warped by intense mascara and facial tattooing England was no exception; protestants continuously blah blah until it almost fell off Then the English King Eider VIII blah blah Pope blah blah roll me over lay me down and do it againMore feathered in the right arm and lower back only wrote Utopia in 1516 just before the outbreak of the second game of Football Utopia originally written in Latin and later translated into Latin depicts what its narrator Sir Dakota Fanning claimed to be an ideal human society The book was a huge success so at least the author’s life became a whole lot ideal if you know what I mean He was now able to afford to prove the famous old saying amare et sapere vix deo conceditur even the wise find shagging essentially ludicrous Horace Third Dialogue Concerning the Proper Disposition of Horses

Libellus vere aureus nec minus salutaris quam festivus de optimo rei publicae statu deque nova insula UtopiaTails isbn 9780140441659 format Paperback and others 154 pages and has a text language like Englis. Not a book that I can recommend for enjoyment masterful prose or good storytelling Rather I think the value in reading is to see the backwardness of a Utopia envisioned by Thomas More an ‘enlightened’ man for the times Of course it is easy to be judgmental about his writings when looking in the rearview mirror at a book nearly 500 years oldMore a high level adviser to King Henry VIII envisions an island nation ‘Utopia’ where they don’t engage in wars and where there is a great deal of discussion on commerce judges absence of lawyers the importance of slaves and how in tough cases a fair prince is the final arbiter Catholicism is the way forward Women have no rights And so on More’s writing is unimaginative by modern standards most middle schoolers today could come up with better utopias if given an assignment To be fair More applied a pragmatic lens to his Utopia But when compared with Shakespeare’s writings that came out half a century later there isn’t much imagination here3 stars A uick read that has some genuine historical value and came from someone who is acknowledged as a supreme intellect for his time

This book was published in 1516 and it's divided into two parts The first one made my eyes feel exhausted so I can sum up all that just by saying that More found his friend Peter and this one introduced him to a fella named Raphael a man who visited several countries to satisfy his desire to see the world He shared some opinions of the political scenario of his time a bit familiar; whether you are talking about yesterday's kingdoms or today's democratic governments some things never change and talked about some general aspects of this awesome island called Utopia The other two guys couldn't believe that such a land could subsist since it was a place where for instance private property didn't existA million words and a couple of eyelashes later Raphael started to talk specifically about Utopia all things relating to their soil their rivers their towns their people their manners constitution laws And here I stop Laws This society has few laws WhyThey very much condemn other nations whose laws together with the commentaries on them swell up to so many volumes; for they think it an unreasonable thing to oblige men to obey a body of laws that are both of such a bulk and so dark as not to be read and understood by every one of the subjectsThat last line seems to have been uite a source of ideas to the great Kafka And I agree laws should be simpler everybody should be able to understand them; and that bureaucracy that sucks life out of people should be eradicated etc etc And so did the Utopians few laws and of course no lawyers they consider them as a sort of people whose profession it is to disguise matters and to wrest the laws; and therefore they think it is much better that every man should plead his own cause and trust it to the judge By this means they both cut off many delays Ignore this paragraph I need to vent and I am going to hide it for your own good view spoilerWell More this is a bit irritating It's not my fault that we have a collapsed legal system I'm not the one who spends a month signing one freaking paper Fu#% bastards that after two months they give you one lousy answer while the moron that also had to study tons of books for five fu#% years and has to watch those laws being violated just like that has to answer to the client and try to explain why the freaking process is taking like five years of hisher LIFE DAMN IT hide spoiler
