The aim of this article is to provide an overview of utopian poems (written and published in both English and Croatian/Serbo-Croatian) by the distinguished utopian scholar Darko Suvin, addressing burning issues of the present historical moment. Suvin’s utopian poetry is of two types, pastoral/Morrisian ones based upon various Chinese and Japanese cultural models and “utopia in retrospect,” based on the historical ex-Yugoslavia model. However, both types advocate a classless society and investigate the necessity of revolution.
