Is a work of fiction and political philosophy by Thomas More (1478-1535) published in 1516 in Latin. The book is a frame narrative primarily depicting a fictional island society and its religious, social and political customs. Many aspects of More's description of Utopia are reminiscent of life in monasteries. The work begins with written correspondence between Thomas More and several people he had met on the continent: Peter Giles,town clerk of Antwerp,and Hieronymus van Busleyden,counselor to Charles V. More chose these letters,which are communications between actual people,to further the plausibility of his fictional land. In the same spirit,these letters also include a specimen of the Utopian alphabet and its poetry, The Letters also explain the lack of widespread travel to Utopia;during the first mention of the land,someone had caughed during announcement of the exact longitude and latitude.
