Fantastic play. Just Fantastic. I read it so often and find myself re-considering a few of my positions on some of the issues.

Following Sir Richard Rich's apparent perjury against More, I love More asking the "court" about the new Seal Rich is wearing (a Seal of office and a great promotion which Rich proudly displays) and whether More may examine it. The court tells Morer that Rich is appointed Attorney General for Wales) and of which More states: "Why Richard, it profits a man nothing to give his whole soul for the world .... But for Wales???"

The point is ... ?

There are many editions of this play. What distinguishes the Modern Classics version is the introduction by the playwright. You might not agree with Bolt's account of his own adaptation of Brecht's 'alienation' technique, but, unlike many authors, he writes coherently and persuasively about his own work.

Know this play well - saw it at the Theatre Royal Newcastle years ago, taught it in my teaching days. I bought this edition after reading "Wolf Hall". Variety of viewpoint is important to history and true to life.
My point in reviewing it here is to praise the Kindle book. So easy to read,to pick up and put down. eBooks will never replace books - but for me, in this past year, since I bought my tablet, they have become a vital part of my life.

brilliant 17 Jan 2014
By Michael Burke - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
Robert Bolt is at his best here with a truly thought-provoking piece of theatre. Ethics, morals, life without compromise. How stand up to the most powerful man/ruler in your life? Sir Thomas More did, and lost his head, but he is remembered for his upright ethos. In a Catholic world ruled by the Pope, how does Henry VIII divorce not only his wife, but the church's authority? And Who stands, morally and righteously intransigent? Sir Thomas. We know Henry is influenced by Martin Luther's writings but Sir Thomas is a staunch Catholic. Read the struggle here presented. Although fictional, it is based on actual letters and diarys.
A Man For All Seasons is of course a fabulously told story 12 Dec 2014
By Ann - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
The Man For All Seasons is a timeless story because it discusses and illustrates man's very most profound subject. There is no greater principal to investigate within ones own soul than the importance of knowing and acknowledging ones own true principals and the vital importance of sticking to ones own discovered truths. No other thing is more important. One must be ready and willing to stand by them no matter the consequence. This stand is your honor. Your life is worth nothing without your honor.

I studied it at school and reread it recently. Neither a word nor a moment out of place. Absolutely magnificent
MAN FOR ALL SEASONS 14 Jan 2014
By Terry D. Gibson - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
This is a film that will never grow old. I am a history buff for the period of Henry the 8th and this film is the best I've seen yet. The Tudor's never cease to fascinate me, but here was a man (not a Tudor) who actually had morals. Excellent film.
