A Man for All Seasons

» Ann Richards

ISBN 978-1-86478-118-2

The Neap smartstudy® English text guide to A Man for All Seasons comprehensively analyses this intriguing play. Robert Bolt’s examination of the political and religious implications of Henry VIII’s quest for divorce provides a potent commentary on issues of power, corruption, morality and personal freedom. Despite the play’s mediaeval setting, Bolt’s depiction of Sir Thomas More as a man of individual integrity and unwavering courage resonates powerfully with contemporary audiences.
