Sir Thomas was so learned that when he was hardly more than a boy he could step upon the stage in the midst of a Latin play and make up a part for himself; and he was so witty that his improvized jests would set the audience into peals of laugh ter. A few years after Henry came to the throne More wrote the lives of Edward V and of Richard II I, and this was the first English historical work that was well arranged and written in a dignified style. The little book by which he is best known, though it is essentially English, was written in Latin, first published in Flanders, and had a Greek title, Utopia, or " nowhere." This describes a country as More thought a country ought to be. In that marvellous land everything was valued according to its real worth. Gold was less useful than iron ; therefore the chains of criminals were made of gold. Kings ruled, not for their own glory, but for the sake of their people. No one was idle, and no one was overworked. War was undertaken only for self-defence, or to aid other nations against invasion. This book is interesting not
