The Giver is supposedly set in a perfect society or utopia. The word utopia was the name of an imaginary island inhabited by an ideal society in a story written by Sir Thomas More in 1516. More created the word from the Greek ou-(no) and topos-(place); utopia literally means "no place." Is it possible to create a utopia?
