"Misprisions of Utopia" reviews the comparative advantages of recent criticism's commitment to allegory as a mode of reading and a form of scholarly narrative. The paper weighs allegory's relations to utopian and messianic thinking and argues that there are important disadvantages to these continuing commitments."
