Reply To: The first dystopian novel?


Hey Gerry! Sorry for the long delay. In theory, I knew this forum was here–but this is my first time to visit. I need to come more often. Yes, it’s a bit of a judgment call, to be sure. I think it would be equally fair to list one of G.K. Chesterton’s books here as well. But, Chesterton’s were seen mostly as fairy tales, while Benson (especially given his prominent role in English religious society) was taken as something else altogether. Do you have another candidate in mind? Yours, Brad
