Annotation

Mostly romance but includes a eutopia, primarily in volume 1, called Oneira that had been established in Africa during the Renaissance. Based on reason. Tax system similar to that in 1656 Harrington results in wealth and the elimination of all taxes. Some satire on politics when there are no real issues. There is a dystopian enclave created deliberately to provide a place for those incapable of living a good Christian life. This is eliminated by the end of the novel.
