Opalescent Worlds: Studies in Utopia. Festschrift in Honour of Artur Blaim is a collection of thematically diversified essays that foreground the generic and intellectual richness of utopia and its immense literary, philosophical, and scholarly potential. The magisterial legacy of Professor Artur Blaim contributes a unique spirit to this book.
In the volume, utopia is approached as a literary tradition, history, social and political involvement, an expression of egalitarianism and care, as a way of thinking that is both local and global, human and non-human, as a record of overcoming trauma, a variety of religious and anti-religious thought, and a way of overthrowing myths and grand narratives. All these forms, themes, and tasks of utopia are explored by the authors in a way that enriches our perception and understanding of the genre.
