Talk by G. F. Hudson , Fellow of All Souls College, Oxford
Scholars have long recognised that certain features of More's Utopia are reminiscent of Inca Peru, but the connection has remained a matter of doubt as the book was published before the Spanish discovery of Peru. There is now evidence that knowledge of Inca Peru had been obtained from earlier explorations on the Brazilian side, and More s story of the Portuguese mariner in Antwerp who first told him about Utopia may have been founded on faot. In this talk the speaker re-examines the apparent connection between Utopia and Peru in the light of this new information.
