In defence of Thomas More

An essay by Eamon Duffy on The trouble with Hilary Mantel’s Tudor world, at The Times Literary Supplement. [Alas, behind the paywall.]
"Mantel's [Wolf Hall] trilogy has reconfigured perception of Tudor England for the early twenty-first century, just as surely as, and even more persuasively than, [Robert] Bolt's Man for All Seasons did for the last decades of the twentieth."
