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, 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, With the publication of Utopia Thomas More provided a scathing analysis of the shortcomings of his own society a realistic suggestion for an alternative mode of social organization and a satire on unrealistic idealism Enormously influential it remains a challenging as well as a playful text This edition reprints Ralph Robinson s translation from More s original Latin together with letters and illustrations that accompanied early editions of Utopia br This edition also includes two other hitherto less accessible utopian narratives New Atlantis offers a fictional illustration of Francis Bacon s visionary ideal of the role that science should play in the modern society Henry Neville s The Isle of Pines a precursor of Defoe s Robinson Crusoe engages with some of the sexual racial and colonialist anxieties of the end of the early modern period Bringing together these three New World texts and situating them in a wider Renaissance context this edition which includes letters maps and alphabets that accompanied early editions illustrates the diversity of the early modern utopian imagination as well as the different purposes to which it could be put
