Answer and Explanation: An anti-utopian novel is where a utopia is secretly a horrible place. While many of the characters believe the setting is a perfect place, there are clues that something is. The book also discusses various possible forms of government, discussing the advantages and disadvantages of each.

Creators of dystopian fictions explore worst possible scenario, highlighting sense of fear in order to show that a perfect society. Dystopia and anti-utopia are synonyms.

However, where dystopia is the general term for a genre of literature where the setting is undesirable and often distressing and violent, anti-utopian writers like George Orwell, Aldous Huxley, or Ariel Djanikian write from a belief that humanity is moving toward what it believes is an ideal, perfect society that is fair to all.

Utopia has a quality of universality, as revealed by the fact that it has fascinated readers of five centuries, has influenced countless writers, and has invited imitation by scores of "Utopianists." Still, however, an examination of the period of which it was the product is necessary in order to view the work in depth.

The total effect is curious, the whole exceeding the sum of the parts. An anti utopia is usually an imaginary world full of horror and misery. It is unlike a utopia, which is an imaginary world that is perfect in every way. The most notable anti utopias were created by two famed authors Aldous Huxley and Geroge Orwell, in their novels based.

Moylan distinguishes between literary forms — utopia, anti-utopia, dystopia, pseudo-dystopia — and “historical antinomies.” (Utopia and Anti-Utopia, ). Many people consider dystopia as a synonym for anti-utopia but let’s go with the definition that a dystopia is an imagining of a society that is substantially worse than the one that the author lives in while an anti-utopia is an imagining of a utopia-gone-wrong or as Wikipedia puts it: “criticisms of attempts to implement various concepts of utopia.”.
