    Hythloday’s travels took him to the New World, the Americas, by way of sub-equatorial Asia. The lodestone is a cautionary image for the book as a whole: just as the lodestone can help people navigate the sea, so can Utopia help us navigate the difficulties of governing well; but to become too confident in such a guide is also to court disaster. Book Two of Utopia is presented to the reader as a direct discourse on various aspects of Utopian society. It is, however, important to remember the fictional frame in which this discourse exists.

    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. Completed in in Aalst, Belgium. Images by Delfino Sisto Legnani e Marco Cappelletti. Taking its cue from Thomas More’s acclaimed book “Utopia”, first printed by prominent Aalst citizen.

For centuries, people have found the ending frustrating because after reading pages (and pages and pages) of all this info on Utopia, we never get much of a sense of what our narrator and author, Thomas More, thinks of it all. All he says is that some things. Abigail Foerstner Abigail Foerstner is the author of books such as Picturing Utopia. Books by Abigail Foerstner.
