Thomas More has long been considered one of the most significant figures in English history, claimed by various people as both hero and villain for the events that led to his execution for refusing to recognizing Henry VIII as head of the Church in England. In this fresh assessment of More's life and legacy, John Guy considers the factors that have given rise to such claims concerning More's significance. Who was the real Thomas More? Was he the saintly, self-possessed hero of conscience of Robert Bolt's A Man for All Seasons or was he the fanatical, heretic-hunting torturer of Hilary Mantel's Wolf Hall? And why does this man continue to fascinate, inspire, and provoke us today?… (més)

History has left us so many Thomas Mores - the principled objector; the humanist; the saint; the idealistic author of Utopia; the burner of heretics. How can we find our way through the mire? Fortunately this short, lucid and lively book offers a crash course in all things More - and our guide is one of the world's foremost Tudor historians. John Guy has spent his whole career working on this period and has already published two books on More, so you know you're in safe hands here. More importantly, he writes in a very accessible way: this is not an academic tome but a light, brisk introduction to a major figure in British history. At only 144 pages, the book is further broken down into sections: first a standard biography, giving the details of More's life, and then chapters exploring More's afterlife in art and fiction, as well as following the lengthy campaign for his canonisation...
