The very title alone indicates that Thomas More pretty much created the genre of the utopian novel with his book that coined the phrase when published in 1516. The general view toward More’s society it that it represents the iconic utopian ideal. Closer scrutiny reveals the dystopia lurking beneath where More’s ideal of perfection includes a nearly unlimited repetition of the concept of virtue while offering notable rare references to the vital importance of personal liberty and individuality.
