Appelbaum, Robert:  
Literature and Utopian Politics in Seventeenth Century England

Publisher: Cambridge, University Press, 2002. (1st Edition).
xi + 256pp. "Hundreds of writers in the English speaking world of the seventeenth century imagined alternative ideal societies. Sometimes they did so by exploring fanciful territories such as the world in the moon or the nations of the Antipodes, but sometimes they composed serious disquisitions about here and now, proposing how England or its nascent colonies could be conceived of an as 'Oceana', a New Jerusalem, a'City on the Hill'. (This book) provides a comprehensive view of the operations of the utopian imagination in England and its colonies from the accession of James VI and I in 1603 to the consolidation of the Restoration under Charles II in the late 1660's. Appealing to social theorists, literary critics, and political and cultural historians, this volume revises prevailing notions of the languages of hope and social dreaming in the making of British modernity during a century of political and intellectual upheaval."

Kessler, Carol Farley:  
Charlotte Perkins Gilman, her progress toward Utopia with selected writings

Publisher: Liverpool, University Press, 1995. (1st Edition).
x + 316pp with b/w frontispiece portrait of Charlotte Perkins Gilman. "The focus of this work is how Charlotte Perkins Gilman developed as a writer and how she imagined a full-blown Utopia for women. This book, which offers a fresh reading of Gilman's fiction, fills a void in Gilman scholarship, in feminist utopian scholarship and in American literary studies. Kessler provides three journeys through Gilman's life: "A Biographical Exploration" discusses facets of her life having a substantial impact upon her utopian writing. Four themes influence this development: the legacy of ancestral expectations; her relationships to father, mother and daughter; the experiences of two marriages and a divorce; and her friendships with women. Gilman and her "Prancing Young Utopia" presents three stages in the development of Gilman's utopian writing. First she imagined neighbourhoods - writing alternately, fiction and non-fiction.Second, she tested in fiction the expression of utopian principles explained in her non-fiction. Finally she created the whole society in her 1915 satire "Herland". All the foregoing writing represents Gilman's effort to imagine in fiction solutions that she recommended in her 1898 feminist treatise, "Women and Economics". "Writing to Empower Living" connects Gilman's biography to her utopian writing as both personal expression and public activism. The writing can be understood as "equipment for living". Ten hard-to-locate utopian novels conclude the volume." Fine cond trade paperback. 9 x 6 inches
