Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

"Ackroyd tells More's story with imaginative sympathy and impeccable scholarship. When one finishes the book one has the sense that not only does Ackroyd know all the available facts about More and his milieu, he knows More himself... this is a wonderful book... masterly." "Observer". Selling over 35,000 copies in hardcover, this title follows the success of Ackroyd's previous biographies, "Blake" and "Dickens".

Synopsis:

Pre-eminent as a courtier and a humanist, a friend to Henry VIII and the author of "Utopia", Thomas More is one of the great figures of England's history. This is a portrait of the first English layman to be beatified as a martyr, and of the social and cultural world in which he lived.
