Kfamily Posted August 20, 2012 Share Posted August 20, 2012 (edited) I'm looking at building my library (I try to collect books over time at thrift stores, book give-aways, etc.) for our future study of utopian/dystopian literature. We won't be doing this study for another year or two, but I was trying to put together a possible list. Here is what I have so far: Utopian/Dystopian Literature: Lord of the Flies by William Golding The Time Machine by H. G. Wells 1984 by George Orwell Fahrenheit 451 by Ray Bradbury Brave New World by Aldous Huxley Utopia by Thomas More The Republic by Plato City of God by Augustine The New Atlantis by Francis Bacon Gulliver's Travels by Jonathan Swift Candide by Voltaire A Modern Utopia by H. G. Wells What do you think of this list? Also, what do you think of these books? The Handmaid's Tale by Margaret Atwood (I saw this on the AP list.) Iron Heel by Jack London (had never heard of this one before) Atlas Shrugged by Ayn Rand (not sure if I spelled the author's first name correctly) (not sure if I want to include this or not) Thanks!
