While often presented as an utopic dream of the 19th century, Esperanto did survive two World Wars and it shows a new vitality in the web era. Why Ludwik Zamenhof devoted his life in the definition and launch of this linguistic project? How did he eventually succeed to form a stable community of speakers?
