Main Description
This book brings together many of the world's leading More scholars in order to offer the first comprehensive reassessment in a quarter of a century of this man and his works. The volume presents a many-sided biographical view on More and substantial discussions of nearly every aspect of the More canon. It is a book that will inform both those who have never studied More previously and those already acquainted with More's life and writings. A. D. Cousins is Professor in English and Chair of Department at Macquarie University. Damian Grace is an Associate Professor in the School of History and Philosophy at UNSW.
