Thomas More: A Biography

About the Author

Richard Marius was a historian, novelist, playwright, and a member of the Harvard faculty.


[Richard Marius's Thomas More] will be the definitive popular biography. Custody of the popular memory of a figure like More is of some real importance, and Marius's custody is exemplary. His book is accessible enough to be read by a wide audience but complete and original enough to merit reading by a specialized audience. It is as subtle and satisfying a portrait as I have encountered in years. -- Jack Miles * Los Angeles Times Book Review *
A very remarkable and exciting book, full of knowledge and understanding. -- G. R. Elton * New York Review of Books *
[Richard Marius's] principal claim as a biographer is an unrivaled knowledge of More's works. This serves him very well, in my view. For instance, he is the first writer to stress the central importance of More's unfinished biography of Richard III. -- Paul Johnson * New York Times Book Review *
