Description

Although numbers as Volume 4, this is the second of the Complete Works to appear, following The History of King Richard III. The Latin text is based on the editions of 1516, 1517, and 1518, fully collated and with the variant readings; the parallel English text is a thoroughly revised version of the translation by G. C. Richards. Also included are the letters on the book exchanged by More and his friends, their tributes, and the marginal glosses of the early editions. The text is followed by a commentary on the relation of Utopia to its own age and as it has been interpreted by scholars. The editors' Introduction included an outline of the genesis and composition of Utopia, edited by Father Surtz, will also appear in the Yale Paperbound format. Father Surtz is professor of English at Loyola University, and Mr. Hexter is professor of history at Yale University. Previously announced.show more
