Lady More is Sir Thomas’s wife. Much less well educated than any other member of her family, she cannot speak Latin, leaving her husband able to shut her out from conversation when he thinks she is talking too much.
She is either ignorant of theatre, or has no taste for it. She is kept in ignorance by her husband as well as by her children and son-in-law, and is aware of it. She does not take well to More’s loss of favor, especially the fact that she herself is no longer able to go to court. She is full of fear about More’s fate, particularly after suffering from a prophetic dream that greatly disturbs her. How much she actually loves her husband is unknown, but she does not want to see him end up on the scaffold.
