Abstract

Short Notices of the Dialogue concerning Heresies. Each text is examined in terms of the social, political and personal context of the time, and Marius uses each piece of writing to establish the character traits of his subject. Yet while it is a readable, educated, and enjoyable work, Thomas More: A Biography is not a fitting legacy for Marius, w h o died shortly after its paperback release. His major scholarly contributions to the study of the saintly Lord Chancellor are his 25 years' work on the Yale Edition of the Complete Works of St Thomas More. Thomas More: A Biography is a book pitched at a popular readership, albeit a very interesting, well-written, and thought-provoking one. It is a good starting point for discussion of T h o m a s M o r e and his writings; it raises m a n y interesting issues, and is full of provocative points. For example, Marius argues that Book O n e of More's Utopia 'is not a cry for reform but a bid for supporting ironic smiles' (p. 158). H e is especially controversial in his re-evaluation of More's personal character, portraying him as a ruthless hunter
