De Tomás Moro quizá puedan destacarse tres vertientes: el hombre político, el intelectual (famoso sobre todo por su "Utopía") y el defensor del catolicismo en Gran Bretaña. A ellos añade Ackroyd una visión del ser humano, del amigo de sus amigos, del intrigante, del humorista, del esposo, a partir de una investigación extraordinariamente detallada y precisa, narrada además con ténicas de novela (reproducción de alugnos diálogos, recreación de escenas, cruce de cartas...)
Después de una obra tan ambiciosa e impresionante como la biografía de "Londres", Peter Ackroyd vuelve a dar muestras de su talento narrativo en obras de no ficción a partir de la trayectoria humana, política e intelectual de uno de los personajes más importantes de la Edad Media europea.

Sobre el autor (2004)

Peter Ackroyd was born in London in 1949. He graduated from Cambridge University and was a Fellow at Yale (1971-1973). A critically acclaimed and versatile writer, Ackroyd began his career while at Yale, publishing two volumes of poetry. He continued writing poetry until he began delving into historical fiction with The Great Fire of London (1982). A constant theme in Ackroyd's work is the blending of past, present, and future, often paralleling the two in his biographies and novels. Much of Ackroyd's work explores the lives of celebrated authors such as Dickens, Milton, Eliot, Blake, and More. Ackroyd's approach is unusual, injecting imagined material into traditional biographies. In The Last Testament of Oscar Wilde (1983), his work takes on an autobiographical form in his account of Wilde's final years. He was widely praised for his believable imitation of Wilde's style. He was awarded the British Whitbread Award for biography in 1984 of T.S. Eliot, and the Whitbread Award for fiction in 1985 for his novel Hawksmoor. Ackroyd currently lives in London and publishes one or two books a year. He still considers poetry to be his first love, seeing his novels as an extension of earlier poetic work.
