Thomas More

ub8优游娱乐关于我们:Utopia

Read by Mark Meadows

unabridged

Thomas More’s Utopia stands out as one of the most striking political works ever written. Composed speci cally as a response to Henry VIII’s break with Rome, the book meditates on the perfect society, while indirectly critiquing the political and social ills of Tudor England. Containing thoughts on religious pluralism, a welfare state and women’s rights, More’s book was well ahead of its time, already hinting at later theories on communism and capitalism centuries before Marx, Engels and Smith.

Mark Meadows brings his British diction and engaging storytelling style to the narration of Thomas More’s political treatise. Utopia appeared just after Henry VIII left the Church of Rome. Published in Latin in 1516, More’s classic speculative fiction is set on a mythical island. Here residents cast off the trappings of English and European society, and dispatch the class system to adapt to an egalitarian and simpler mode of living. Meadows’s tone enlivens More’s text and gives the Utopian political, economic, and religious systems their due. This brief audiobook rewards the listener with insights into one of the most influential texts on later generations of political writers and thinkers – from Karl Marx to Adam Smith.
