Annotation

Eutopia on Mars based on foreknowledge about one’s own life, which brings serenity and good relations with others. Only Earth does not have this ability. Bellamy is best known for his 1888 Looking Backward. After publishing Looking Backward Bellamy became a social reformer and was involved with two journals, The Nationalist (1889-91) and The New Nation (1891-94), which he edited and published, and wrote many essays defending or elaborating his position; some of these have been collected in his Edward Bellamy Speaks Again! Articles–Public Addresses–Letters. Chicago, IL: The Peerage Press, 1937. 2nd ed. Chicago, IL: The Peerage Press, 1938; and Talks On Nationalism. Chicago, IL: The Peerage Press, 1938. 1897 Bellamy is a sequel to Looking Backward and 1889 Bellamy, “With Eyes Shut,” and 1891 and 1895 Bellamy are set in the same eutopia. A utopia not directly connected to Looking Backward is 1889 Bellamy, “To Whom This May Come.”
