The city madam by Philip Massinger( Book )

4 editions published in 1934 in English and held by 147 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

""Philip Massinger's 1632 play reworks Shakespeare's Measure for Measure as a waspish city comedy intended to attack the vices of hypocrisy, greed, self-indulgence and social pretension. Wealthy merchant Sir John Frugal takes pity on his penniless brother Luke and invites him to live under his roof with John's own haughty wife and two foolishly conceited daughters. As Luke plots to steal from his brother, and his daughters arrogantly spurn worthy suitors, John plans to teach them all a lesson. Retiring to a monastic life, he leaves his brother Luke in charge of the household, before returning in disguise to watch havoc unfold."--Publisher's website

The Altrurian romances by William Dean Howells( Book )

9 editions published in 1968 in English and held by 24 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Altrurian Romances(1968)of William Dean Howells consists of three utopias: A Traveller from Altruria(1894), "The Letters of an Altrurian Traveller" (1893-94), and Through the Eye of the Needle (1907). The Altrurian traveller, Aristides Homos, visits the United States in 1892 and stays there for about a year and a half, visiting a New Hampshire mountain resort hotel, New York City and Chicago. These romances record Homos's criticisms of the social, political, and economic conditions of the industrial, capitalistic and "plutocratic" America. The Commonwealth of Altruria has attained the Utopian dream of brotherly equality through literal applications of the principles of "liberty, equality, and fraternity." Howells uses Homos as his spokesman in such a way that Homos's account of his country implies every insulting criticism of America. By letting the Altrurian Homos and his American wife describe the conditions of Altruria where complete social, political, and economic equality has been attained, Howells effectively draws the people's attention to his call for social justice through return to the ideals of the Declaration of Independence and the Constitution,especially through the strict observance of the principles of "liberty, equality, and fraternity." -- University of Ryukyus Repository
