A superlative biography of a controversial figure
Richard Marius' superb biography is concerned with the man who lived, not the saint who died. He views the author of Utopia, the husband and father, the Lord Chancellor, as a man of this world - and sees in this More's great personal drama. For his essentially medieval mind could never resolve the question of whether he had sinned in his preference for the marriage bed over the cloister.
Marius' many years of devotion to More scholarship have enabled him to write authoritatively of the very human man who died 'more for what he wanted to believe than for what he did'; and in doing so have made him live again for us.
Christopher Booker, Sunday Telegraph - 'It is the measure of this biography's quite outstanding quality that it lets us see, as never before, all the dark side of St Thomas More, in such a way as only to heighten the glory of his end.'
