In Utopia, More imagined a member of Amerigo Vespucci’s expedition to the New World who becomes separated from the other Europeans and .

      DiCaprio’s Appian Way and In Good Company Films are developing the series, entitled, Island, according to a report by Variety. Appian Way — which was launched in — has producing credits on feature films such as The Aviator, Shutter Island, The Ides of March, Runner Runner, The Wolf of Wall Street, The Revenant, Robin Hood, and Richard Jewell. A utopia is an ideal, or perfect, place. The word first appeared in a book written by Sir Thomas More in the s. More came up with “utopia” by combining Greek words meaning “no place.” The word suggests that, though no ideal community exists, people can create one by working together.

    This is why one must look at Utopia as a society designed only to better the people of the capitalist England. It is absurd to look at Utopia as a perfect state, in as much, the knowledge which was true to More would interfere with many areas within the society of Utopia; More’s faith, his ignorance of the evolving future, and the societies outside of Utopia described in “Book Two” would. The Search of Utopia in Dystopia in Gulliver’s Travels Utopia, the word invented by Sir Thomas More for his book Utopia, describing a fictional island in the Atlantic Ocean, now is generally considered as a world which tends to be perfect, a world of equality, without conflicts.

Arguably one of the first books to invent an imaginary world, Thomas More's Utopia describes the travels of one man, Raphael Hythloday, to an undiscovered island that he considers to be the best country on earth.

Nope, he's not exaggerating. Utopias and Dystopias: Definition and Characteristics from Utopia: A place, state, or condition that is ideally perfect in respect of politics, laws, customs, and conditions. Characteristics of a Utopian Society • Information, independent thought, and freedom are promoted.

Utopia was not always an island, Hythloday says, nor was it always called Utopia. Its first name was Abraxa, perhaps meaning “Holy Name,” “without breeches,” or “waterless.” Utopus, the conqueror of the place and the founder of Utopia itself, civilized the natives of Abraxa and had them, along with his own soldiers, cut up and dig away the fifteen miles of ground that connected.The fact that Utopia is an island is also really important.

And if you weren't already thinking that islands tend to be places where special stuff goes down, More kind of hits your over the head with it: Utopia is a man-made island! One day it's a regular old peninsula, the next day, it's an island.Hythloday says that he has described as truly as possible the form and order of Utopia, which he thinks is not only the best commonwealth in the world but also the only one worthy of the name “commonwealth,” for nothing is private there.

Unlike nations founded on the institution of private property, Utopia provides equally and abundantly for all its citizens.
