Product Information

Much expanded and now spined version of Past Tense's earlier pamphlet with the same name.  The myth of a free earthly paradise was expressed in a popular song 'The Land of Cokaygne' in which rivers ran with wine and milk, houses were made of pastry and tarts and animals ran around cooked and ready to be eaten. Author Omasius Gorgut traces the popular fantasy from medieval Europe to the modern USA, exploring the cultures and class tensions Cokaygne emerged from, and remembering the rebels who tried to turn the dream into reality...
