The volume Individual versus society in the Dystopian fiction of the first half of the XX-th century by Gabriel ROMAN-BARBUTI, published at Lumen Publishing House, presents the complex relationship between the individual and society in the anti-utopian literature of the first half of the XX-th century, a period which has been an extremely prodigious one for the utopian literature, marking a decisive shift of perspective of the utopian imaginary. The paper is divided into four chapters and a conclusion, and it will deal, in its opening chapter, with the transition from utopia to anti-utopia, with broad and comprehensive study cases and a multitude of references, and its subsequent chapters with textual analyses of the different relationships between man and his governing society.
