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, 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, Publication of this volume brings to conclusion the Yale Edition of the Complete Works of St Thomas More a thirty year publishing project of landmark importance in the study of humanism in Western history The volume contains More s earliest works probably written between and including English poems a translation and devotional adaptation of Giovanni Francesco Pico s life of his famous uncle Giovanni Pico della Mirandola and a devotional prose work br These texts together trace More s earliest career as a humanist through his transition to maturity as a defender of the faith br The English poems c are lively and experimental works written at a time when English poetry was in its doldrums This collection includes verses for a series of painted hangings in More s father s house a lament for Queen Elizabeth wife of Henry VII traditional and sober Fortune verses and a lively medieval comic poem A Merry Gest of a Sergeant and a Friar The Life of Pico c is very likely More s earliest prose work and is his only extended translation of another writer s Latin into English The translation is remarkable for its time when sophisticated Latin was difficult to translate into more primitive English The Last Things c is an incomplete prose work that re creates the tradition of writing on death judgment hell and heaven as objects of meditation br With the publication of St Thomas More Selected Poems edited by Elizabeth F Rogers the Yale University Press rated two new editions of the works of St Thomas More One is a complete scholarly edition in fourteen volumes the other a modernized version of selected works in seven volumes St Thomas More Selected Letters is the first volume in the Selected Works The History of King Richard III is Volume in the Complete Works These editions to be published over a period of ten years are designed to serve as standard reference works for many decades to come Sponsored by the Yale University Department of English and the Yale University Library these editions mark a new era in the study of Renaissance literature history and religion
