UTOPIA: literally it means <<place that does not exist>> and describes an imaginary world
in which the social justice is effective and where the rules are clearly defined and the
principles that could guarantee the justice are followed.
The utopian narrative involves the descriptions of societies similar to the author’s one but
based on better principles. The author tries to stimulate the reflection of the readers about
the differences between reality and fiction with the final purpose of improving reality itself.
There are some basic points in a utopian novel:
The story is set in an isolated place
The story is developed by following the principles of that place
The founders wished to create a place of ideal perfection, especially in laws,
government, and social conditions
When it is created in real life or fiction, it turns out that it is an impractical scheme for
social improvement and may lead to tragedy.
