Summary
"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 collection 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."--Jacket
