Source: E. In the English translation, Utopia phonetically echoes and becomes also a homophone for eutopia, which means a good place. The name of the main protagonist, Hythloday, which can be translated as transmitter of nonsense , along with the entire situation in which he finds himself as a reporter, and many details, hint at the mockery and irony of the book.

There are similarities only on the surface and they are different in their depth. Erewhon is a deviation of Utopia written right to left. It is neither a utopia nor a dystopia, a double but not a negative of Utopia. Rather, it is a utopia-in-a-utopia, a nomadic utopianism of the distribution of the individual and mutating lines of machinic genera in the evolution of a machinic universe, where the relation between utopia and the real has been turned upside down — the machinic simulacra of Erewhon produces the real.
A part of the book builds on an article Samuel Butler had published some years earlier under the heading Darwin among the Machines.

It turns upside down the mechanisms of discipline. The institutions of the school, prison and hospital function under inverted signs. The ill or the ugly are criminalized and put in prison, their sentence proportional to their illness or ugliness.
Financial speculators and thieves are treated gently and with care in the hospital. Those who try to make sense and construct a memory of history are thrown out of school. After the revolution, which starts with the demolition of the mechanical machines, the society of Erewhon evolves into a sophisticated and self-perfecting new generation machine of biopower.

One can say that the genealogy of Utopia has its obvious colonial perspectives, being linked to the new world and the new colonies; they remain in traces even in utopian projects like those of Charles Fourier, as Fourierist communities were founded in the USA in the mid th century. The nomadic utopianism of errant thought can be conceived as a rupture with the colonial project and escapism from the very notion of territory. Every journey to no-where is a journey in reverse, contracting the space of writing in-itself and opening to its virtual potentiality.
Writing constitutes a space whose potentiality is that of repetition. In Difference and Repetition , Deleuze first conceptualized actualization in reverse on the basis of the diagrammatic anagram of Erewhon.
Indigenising Anthropology with Guattari and Deleuze
As a book it is a plane of consistency of flat multiplicities of n dimensions, a machine. This simultaneity is real, and independent of the fact that it is usually perceived in succession. And, conversely, the whole is so related to every part that whether one reads horizontally, vertically, diagonally or even in reverse, the logic of the whole is not disrupted, but remains intact.
Indeed More dedicated Utopia to him. The Utopian alphabet is the fictional system of signs of the fictional language of the fictional society inhabiting the fictional no land of Utopia. It is a poetic and extremely strange and foreign language.

At the same time, the cryptographic alphabet expressed the temptation of a new language and the desires for a new politics and for change, leaving behind the domination of written Latin, in which the main body of Utopia was nonetheless written. It can also be seen as an anticipation of the new machinic fictional languages, or artificial languages. The alphabet may be reminiscent of some ancient Asian scripts but is no appropriation and consists of a set of newly created diagrammatical dynamic spatial geometrical empty forms.
More includes on the opening pages of the book a verse written in the new utopian language, in the new alphabet. Perforation cards to be used with the Analytical Engine, c. Going back to the Deleuzian and Guattarian concept of minor and foreign language within written language, the language of the other, there are plenty of references one can start from.

Concept, Sensation, Intensity: Deleuze's Theory of Art and Cinema
This work explores the significance of two recurring themes in the thought of Gilles Deleuze: his critique of psychoanalysis and praise for Anglo-American literature. Tracing the overlooked influence of English writer D. Lawrence on Deleuze, Rockwell Clancy shows how these themes ultimately bear on two competing "political anthropologies," conceptions of the political and the respective accounts of philosophical anthropology on which they are based.
Contrary to the mainstream of both Deleuze studies and contemporary political thought, Clancy argues that the major contemporary importance of Deleuze's thought consists in the way he grounds his analyses of the political on accounts of philosophical anthropology, helping to make sense of the contemporary backlash against inclusive liberal values evident in forms of political conservatism and religious fundamentalism.
