This is a free study guide to A Man For All Seasons written by Robert Bolt. In his Preface, Bolt says he was not interested in More as a religious martyr but in More as a hero of individual conscience. He portrays More as the ideal humanist who thinks for himself. He explains that he wants to draw the lessons that interest a modern audience.
The integrity of Sir Thomas More can be admired from many angles. For instance, More is read today by socialists for his ideas of common ownership in his book, Utopia, and by Catholics as a canonized saint for defending the Catholic Church.
