About This Book

Saint Thomas More's Utopia is one of the most important works of European humanism and serves as a key text in survey courses on Western intellectual history, the Renaissance, political theory, and many other subjects. Preeminent More scholar Clarence H. Miller does justice to the full range of More's rhetoric in this masterful translation. In a new afterword to this edition, Jerry Harp contextualizes More's life and Utopia within the wider frames of European humanism and the Renaissance.

"Clarence H. Miller's fine translation tracks the supple variations of More’s Latin with unmatched precision, and his Introduction and notes are masterly. Jerry Harp's new Afterword adroitly places More's wonderful little book into its broader contexts in intellectual history." - George M. Logan, author of The Meaning of More's "Utopia"

"Sir Thomas More's Utopia is not merely one of the foundational texts of western culture, but also a book whose most fundamental concerns are as urgent now as they were in 1516 when it was written. Clarence H. Miller's wonderful translation of More's classic is now happily once again available to readers. This is the English edition that best captures the tone and texture of More's original Latin, and its notes and introduction, along with the lively afterward by Jerry Harp, graciously supply exactly the kinds of help a modern reader might desire." - David Scott Kastan, Yale University

Recently 
the 
invincible 
king 
of 
England,
‚ȧ‚ąě
Henry 
the 
eighth 
of
that 
name, 
who 
is 
lavishly 
endowed 
with 
all 
skills 
necessary 
for
an 
outstanding 
ruler, 
had 
some 
matters 
of 
no

moment
‚ȧ‚ȧ
which 
had 
to 
be 
worked 
out 
with 
Charles, 
the 
most 
serene
prince 
of 
Castile.
‚ȧ‚Č•
To 
discuss 
and 
resolve 
these 
di‚ąöerences
he 
sent 
me 
to 
Flanders 
as 
his 
ambassador; 
I 
was 
the 
compan-
ion 
and 
colleague 
of 
the 
incomparable 
Cuthbert 
Tunstall,
whom 
he 
recently 
appointed 
to 
be 
Master 
of 
the 
Rolls, 
to 
the
enormous 
satisfaction 
of 
everyone.
‚ȧ‚ąā
I 
will 
say 
nothing 
in 
his
praise, 
not 
because 
I 
am 
afraid 
that 
my 
friendship 
might 
seem
to 
make 
me 
an 
unreliable 
witness, 
but 
because 
his 
virtue 
and
learning 
are 
beyond 
my 
power 
to 
proclaim 
them 
and 
because
they 
are 
everywhere 
so 
renowned 
and 
well 
known 
that 
there 
is
no 
need 
for 
me 
to 
do 
so, 
unless 
I 
intend 
to 
display 
the 
sun 
by

of 
a 
lantern, 
as 
they 
say.
