Utopian Visionaries
Dostoevsky & Le Guin

February 10 2024

After the last post about Biosphere 2, I would like to linger a little longer in utopian realms of thought. These two visionary tales are written hundred years apart, under very different conditions by very different authors yet they make a great match.

I’ve previously shared these two short stories in the newsletter, but I think they deserve a post, so people can discover them when browsing the archive.

The Dream of a Ridiculous Man


Fyodor Dostoevsky

The Ones Who Walk Away From Omelas


Ursula K. Le Guin
