Influenced by the artistic and cultural Renaissance, the transformation of both English language and literature. The period is characterized by the influence of the classics (in literature, language, and philosophy), as well as an optimistic forward-thinking approach to the potential of humans (known as Renaissance humanism). In simple terms, the Renaissance in England was caused by the spread of Renaissance learning and ideology from Italy, where it developed earlier (c.1400–1500). The Renaissance embraced not only literature, but also art and architecture. MAJOR LITERARY FIGURES SIR THOMAS MORE The most important of the writers was humanist Sir Thomas More. He was born in Milk Street, London on February 7, 1478. He studied at Oxford and was successful as a lawyer from 1501. He served as an undersheriff of London and endeared himself to Londoners as a fair judge and consultant. February 7, 1478 - 6 July, 1535 In 1517 More was named to the king's council, and he became Henry VIII's secretary and confidant. In 1523 he was elected speaker of the House of Commons. He wrote A Dialogue Concerning Heresies (1529) to refute heretical writings. Thomas More was devote catholic, he was against the King and was condemned to death and beheaded in the Tower of London on April 17. “UTOPIA” More's Utopia was, in the words of Legouis, "true prologue to the Renaissance.'" It was the first book written by an Englishman which achieved European fame; it was written in Latin (1516) and only later (1555) was translated into English. The word "Utopia" is from Greek "ou topos" meaning "no place". More's Utopia is an imaginary island which is the habitat of an ideal republic. IT CONSISTS OF TWO PARTS: In the first there is a vivid picture of the terrible evils which England was suffering through war, lawlessness, the wholesale and foolish application of the death penalty, the misery of the peasants, the absorption of the land by the rich, and the other distressing corruptions in Church and State. In the second part, in contrast to all this, a certain imaginary Raphael Hythlodaye describes the customs of Utopia, a remote island in the New World, to which chance has carried him. To some of the ideals thus set forth More can scarcely have expected the world ever to attain; and some of them will hardly appeal to the majority of readers of any period; but in the main he lays down an admirable program for human progress, no small part of which has been actually realized in the four centuries which have since elapsed.
