Richard III s reputation stands as one of the most evil men in history a manipulating and murderous man who would stop at nothing to become king Much of what modern scholarship knows of him stems from Thomas More s critical biography which itself proved the inspiration for Shakespeare s play Focusing on the final years of Richard III s life Sir Thomas More depicts a man captivated and corrupted by the thrill of power a man who twisted God s laws to justify not only his ruthless ambitions but his most heinous crime the imprisonment and murder of his nephews the true heirs to the throne i The History of King Richard III i is a powerful portrayal of a monstrous ruler and a fascinating insight into the mind and motivations of its author Scholar politician and one time favorite of the Court of Henry VIII Sir Thomas More is best known for his i Utopia i, Wootton s translation brings out the liveliness of More s work and offers an accurate and reliable version of a masterpiece of social theory His edition is further distinguished by the inclusion of a translation of Erasmus s The Sileni of Alcibiades a work very close in sentiment to Utopia and one immensely influential in the sixteenth century This attractive combination suits the edition especially well for use in Renaissance and Reformation courses as well as as for Western Civilization survey courses Wootton s Introduction simultaneously provides a remarkably useful guide to anyone s first reading of More s mysterious work and advances an original argument on the origins and purposes of Utopia which no one interested in sixteenth century social theory will want to miss, Written from the Tower of London these letters of Thomas More still speak powerfully today The story of Thomas More recently told in Peter Ackroyd s bestselling biography is well known In the spring of Thomas More was taken to the Tower of London and after fourteen months in prison the brilliant author of Utopia friend of Erasmus and the humanities and former Lord Chancellor of England was beheaded on Tower Hill Yet More wrote some of his best works as a prisoner including a set of historically and religiously important letters The Last Letters of Thomas More is a superb new edition of More s prison correspondence introduced and fully annotated for contemporary readers by Alvaro de Silva Based on the critical edition of More s correspondence this volume begins with letters penned by More to Cromwell and Henry VIII in February and ends with More s last words to his daughter Margaret Roper on the eve of his execution More writes on a host of topics prayer and penance the right use of riches and power the joys of heaven psychological depression and suicidal temptations the moral compromises of those who imprisoned him and much more This volume not only records the clarity of More s conscience and his readiness to die for the integrity of his religious faith but it also throws light on the literary works that More wrote during the same period and on the religious and political conditions of Tudor England, Thomas More is perhaps most familiar to us from his courageous struggle with Henry VIII unforgettably portrayed in Robert Bolt s classic i A Man for All Seasons i But that final struggle which ended in his execution for treason was only the crowning act in a life that he had devoted to God long before br br In the first selection in decades made for the general reader from his collected works this volume traces More s journey of moral conviction in his own words and writings Drawing on a variety of More s late writings the extraordinary Tower Works written in prison his poignant last letters to his daughter Margaret and his poems private prayers and devotional works this collectio i n i will provide even readers lacking a background in Renaissance humanism or history with a rich introduction to a startlingly modern man of spiritual principle Also included is the famous Life of Sir Thomas More written by his son in law William Roper br br In the annals of spirituality certain books stand out both for their historical importance and for their continued relevance The Vintage Spiritual Classics series offers the greatest of these works in authoritative new editions with specially commissioned essays by noted contemporary commentators Filled with eloquence and fresh insight encouragement and solace Vintage Spiritual Classics are incomparable resources for all readers who seek a more substantive understanding of mankind s relation to the divine
