Good Company is a superb new edition of More's prison correspondence, introduced and fully annotated for contemporary readers by Alvaro de Silva. Based on the critical edition of More's correspondence, this volume begins with letters penned by More to Cromwell and Henry VIII in February 1534 and end with More's last words to his daughter, Margaret Roper, on the eve of his execution.

Valuable to a range of readers, this volume records the clarity of More's conscience and his readiness to die for the integrity of his religious faith. It also throws light on the literary works More wrote during the same period and on the religious and political conditions of Tudor England.
