Literature & Fiction Kindle eBooks @ Amazon.com. 㴰 E-Pub Author Thomas More The Life of Thomas More is Peter Ackroyd s biography from baptism to beheading of the lawyer who became a saint More, a noted humanist whose friendship with Erasmus and authorship of Utopia earned him great fame in Europe, succeeded Cardinal Wolsey as Lord Chancellor of London at the time of the English Reformation In 1535, More was martyred for his refusal to support Henry VIII s divorce and break with Rome Ackroyd s biography is a masterpiece in several senses Perhaps most importantly, he corrects the mistaken impression that Robert Bolt s A Man for All Seasons has given two generations of theater and film audiences More was not, as Bolt s drama would have us believe, a civil disobedient who put his conscience above the law Ackroyd explains that conscience was not for More an individual matter Instead, it was derived from the laws of God and of reason If the greatest justice in this book is analytic, however, its greatest joys are descriptive Ackroyd brings 16th century London to life for his readers an exotic world where all of life is enveloped by the church As the young More made his way along the lanes and thoroughfares, there was the continual sound of bells Michael Joseph GrossAccording to Ackroyd Blake Hawksmoor , More embodied the old order of hierarchy and authority at the very moment when it began to collapse all around him Symbolizing that collapse was Henry VIII s defiance of the pope in the great matter of his much desired divorce of Catherine of Aragon Refusing to compromise with the break from Rome, More willed his own death He dies well in Ackroyd s narrative, but he does not live a life as saintly as he leaves it, piously amassing wealth and power, piously writing philosophical works as ambiguous as Utopia and as scatological as Responsio, piously harassing religious reformers and smugly condemning them to the stake As a biographer of More the first since 1984 , Ackroyd is also an effective novelist He evokes late medieval London in sight and in smell sends More on his workaholic schedule of legal, political, diplomatic and courtly activities exploits familial and hagiographic anecdotes for their story values and repeats unscholarly untruths as Luther s cloacal epiphanies because fiction can be colorful than fact Only Henry VIII in Ackroyd s large cast fails to be realized in the round, but the king, recognizing More s loyal services, does graciously reduce his sentence from disemboweling to beheading After an awkward, conditional start But it might be fruitful to recognise but it might be worth rehearsing certain of its aspects It has in the past been noticed , Ackroyd s clotted language metamorphoses into elegant English, and the nobility of More s demise will move readers who persist to the end 27 b w illustrations not seen by PW BOMC, History Book Club and QPB selections Copyright 1998 Reed Business Information, Inc.
