Looking Backward To Nowhere
Two Visions of Utopia
Looking Backward to Nowhere: Two Visions of Utopia
presents the complete text of two 19th century utopian novels:
by Edward Bellamy and
News from Nowhere
by William Morris. The two works offer a fascinating comparison not only because Bellamy speaks from an American perspective and Morris from a British context, but also because Morris wrote his novel as a direct response to Bellamy’s, so the plot and thematic contrasts abound. Short introductory comments by Richard Mathews are supplemented by a generous selection of excerpts from Thomas More’s
, which help to place both texts within the utopian tradition. This is a convenient text for courses in utopian studies or imaginary worlds—or for creative thinking about how we might live a better life.
