While searching for John Guy's new biography "A Daughter's Love" which looks on Sir Thomas More and his daughter, Margaret, it was found that Mr Guy wrote a full bio of More a few years ago.
My question...is this latest work just a re-write, of sorts, with the focus now shifted towards the direction of Meg Roper?
In other words...should the earlier biography be purchased instead of his newest look at Sir Thomas?
I have not seen Guy's new book on More's daughter Margaret, but I have read his biography of Sir Thomas More. In light of Guy's reputation as a scholar and increased interest in recent years in the women of the Tudor period, I suspect A Daughter's Love is not a "re-write" of the book on More, though obviously a lot of material will be similar. Margaret was a fascinating person in her own right and an unusually well-documented one (for a pre-modern woman), so if she is your main interest, I say buy A Daughter's Love.
Thank you for the feedback.
My principal interest is Meg so this books sounds perfect. A used copy has been found and it'll soon be winging its way north.
