A Study of Sir Thomas More's Utopia As Literary Satire

To undertake a comprehensive satiric reading of Sir Thomas More's Utopia. More's controversial work is customarily read as a serious philosophical or sociological tract. By reasserting the particular cultural and intellectual milieu of its author and his age, Utopia may be most profitably read as the work of a devotee of Lucian whose primary interest lay in a witty attack upon the social inequities and intellectual cant of his age.
