The Bible, of course, which as all of those plot lines, and is the greatest fiction book ever written.

Although it would be a huge stretch to call the bible ‘utopian’

@Zaku This is interesting. I just learned about Gilgamesh and how there is a tale very similar to Noahs Ark and how that story came first or at least around the same time. It depends on whose dating of the stories are correct.
