內容簡介

Among Thomas More's last works, "A Dialogue of Comfort Against Tribulation" is one of his most important. Thomas More wrote this book in the Tower of London as he awaited execution, but the style is not the raging vituperative one he used when confuting Tyndale. There are "merry tales" such as the one about the German who was never satiate his own praise, but most of the book is given over to meditation on death. Thomas More has two characters, Anthony a young man, and Vincent, his aged Uncle. They are placed in Budapest and they are fearful of an impending invasion by the Turks. More's story has been read as thinly veiled allegory of his own situation. Anthony standing in for More's son-in-law William Roper, and Vincent for Thomas More himself. That may be putting it too simplistically, but it is a good starting point. Unlike More's best known work "Utopia," "A Dialogue of Comfort" was not written in Latin, but in English. In this spiritual book, Thomas More asks the question "where shall comfort come from," then answers his own question: "For God is and must be your comfort, and not I."
