Devinne, Paul

Entry updated 12 September 2022. Tagged: Author.

(?   -?   ) US author of a Sleeper Awakes tale, The Day of Prosperity: A Vision of the Century to Come (1902), whose protagonist, on awakening after a century of well-tended sleep, complacently discovers a Utopia on lines directly reminiscent of Edward Bellamy's Looking Backward (1888): but even more than Bellamy, Devinne sees technological advances as inevitably generating a better world.
