Sutherland, James

Entry updated 12 August 2018. Tagged: Author.

(1900-1996) Scottish academic and author whose Parody of the Fantastic Voyage genre, The Narrative of Jasper Weeple: Being an Account of his Strange Journey to the Land of Midanglia, and of all that Happened to him in that Country (1930), describes the discovery of a medieval Utopian Lost Race in the heart of contemporary England. Midanglia, a benevolent monarchy, lives according to egalitarian principles: equal pay for all; no marriage, no Religion, no high Technology. Tragically, however, an incursion of capitalists destroys this world. Sutherland was knighted in 1992. [JC]
