Product Description

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. The History of King Richard III 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 Utopia.

Product Description
Written from the Tower of London, these letters of ThomasMore still speak powerfully today.

In the spring of 1534, 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 ofEngland was beheaded on Tower Hill. Yet More wrote some of his bestworks as a prisoner, including a set of historically and religiouslyimportant letters.

The Last Letters of Thomas More is a superb new edition ofMore's prison correspondence, introduced and fully annotated forcontemporary readers by Alvaro de Silva. Based on the critical editionof More's correspondence, this volume begins with letters penned byMore to Cromwell and Henry VIII in February 1534 and ends with More'slast words to his daughter, Margaret Roper, on the eve of hisexecution. More writes on a host of topics--prayer and penance, theright use of riches and power, the joys of heaven, psychologicaldepression and suicidal temptations, the moral compromises of thosewho imprisoned him, and much more.

Valuable to a range of readers, this volume records the clarity ofMore's conscience and his readiness to die for the integrity of hisreligious faith. It also throws light on the literary works that Morewrote during the same period and on the religious and politicalconditions of Tudor England. Gripping reading awaits those who delveinto these pages. ... Read more

Lionizing a man who burnt others at the stake for standing up for their own consciences.

Product Description
Best known today as the author of Utopia, a fictional portrait of an ideal society, Thomas More (1478-1535) was a major figure of the Tudor era. He wrote numerous political and religious works, was a major proponent of Christian Humanism, and corresponded with some of the leading figures of his day. He was executed for his refusal to recognize Henry VIII as England's spiritual leader and was canonized for his martyrdom. This bibliography includes more than 1600 annotated entries for all major works on More's life and writings published from 1935 to 1997. It cites books, collections of essays, and journal articles written in English, French, German, Dutch, Italian, Spanish, and Portuguese. The opening chapters cover reference works, editions, and editorial concerns. A chapter on biography precedes sections on general critical studies; More's reception, reputation, and influence; the religious and philosophical background of his works; and his language, style, and use of classical and Christian sources. Individual chapters then treat particular major works, such as his History of King Richard III, or clusters of shorter works, such as his English and Latin poems. Entries include cross-references, and the volume closes with a detailed index. ... Read more

Editorial Review

Product Description
With the publication of Utopia (1516), 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 1556 translation from More's original Latin together with letters and illustrations that accompanied early editions of Utopia.

This edition also includes two other, hitherto less accessible, utopian narratives. New Atlantis (1627) 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 (1668), 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. ...

3-0 out of 5 stars This edition NOT recommended for certain teaching purposes
This edition of More's Utopia (and Bacon, and Neville), is a valuable volume in one respect: it makes available historic early translations/editions of these three texts. However, this aspect makes it less than desirable for one major intended audience of Oxford Classics: students in college courses. In particular, the 1557 edition of More's Utopia, while a fascinating read from a historical perspective (e.g. the use of "weal-public" alongside synonyms like commonweal, commonwealth, and republic), is simply too difficult and antiquated for most college students to understand and appreciate what is going on in this important text. I'm a college instructor and I ordered this volume because it seemed to offer a good value for all three works. But my students found it MUCH too hard to understand (and I have to admit, the Utopia text was even slow going for me), so I had to post an online version in more contemporary English for them to read, and the week's discussion was hijacked by this problem of the text. Bottom line, if you are looking for a course text that will engage your students, keep shopping, because this edition will only frustrate them (and you, when you have to find another text of Utopia for them to read).

4-0 out of 5 stars Interesting tales, particulary the lesser-known "Isle of Pines"
As usual, Oxford does a good job with translations, introductions and notes.

More's "Utopia" is the longest and best of the three works presented in this book, at least as far as fleshing out the details of how a utopian civilization would really look, particularly when situated among other civilizations.But, since most people are familiar with it to some degree, I'll discuss the other two writings in more detail.

Bacon's "New Atlantis" is the least satisfying of the three utopian civilizations.First, it isn't complete, barely beginning before it ends.Second, it seems to be more about scientific specialization (i.e. how the New Atlantic culture has made great strides in various fields of science [e.g. agriculture, astronomy]) than about utopian society per se.It is interesting how Bacon relates these islanders, far from Europe, to the famed ancient Atlantean society.

Neville's "Isle of Pines" is an interesting tale of shipwreck and discovery.A ship sinks near the coast of a faraway island, killing everyone except a man with the last name "Pine" and a few women, one of whom is black.What follows is a fascinating story of old/new-world racism and debauchery.Basically, the Pine fellow starts bedding ALL the women (two of whom, if I recall, are sisters) because, you know, they're not getting rescued any time soon and they've got to keep civilization going.Eventually, they all dispense with the wearing of clothes.Then ALL the women get pregnant and turn into baby factories and everyone breeds like rabbits until there are hundreds of people within one or two generations.The interesting tack that Neville takes is that Pine only sleeps with the black woman at night, she "craftily" sneaking into his bed.In addition, her progeny happen to be the bad apples of the island, which is discussed from the perspective of some visiting sailors many years after the shipwreck.Fascinating view into the European mind from several centuries back.

5-0 out of 5 stars Good collection
I have enjoyed Oxford World Classics for a long time because of the notes, biographies, and other content that is added to the book to supplement the stories themselves. This is a decent collection of three stories, with all the necessary notes and such. If you're curious about Utopia, buy this book and you'll get two other visions of Utopia as well, making for a good overall reading experience (once you get past the old language, which is rather clunky at times, but that is how it was written) and you'll learn a few things too.

5-0 out of 5 stars Prose which still affects our thinking
Literature before James Joyce, before Jane Austen, before Daniel Defoe: NoUlysses, no Emma, no Robinson Crusoe - for modern readers it is hard toimagine a stock of English literature without the existence of these andother important writers and their `novels'. What kind of literature couldone refer to in a pre-novelistic age? As a matter of fact, there wereauthors, such as Sir Thomas More and Sir Francis Bacon, who wrote prosewhich, indeed, still affects our thinking. However, neither More nor Baconused English, but chose Latin as their original means of expression. Forwhat reasons? And none of these authors was in fact a free-lance writer -they were all occupied in public and political spheres. What made themactually write fictional works? How does their fiction relate to theircultural environment - or, what was regarded as `fiction'? These textscover a century of political, religious, scientific and literary debatesand gave rise to a new understanding of knowledge, and introducedinfluential literary devices. ... Read more
