A Man for All Seasons - Act 1

Bolt, A Man for All Seasons -- Drama as Literature (EL 250)

More :This country’s planted thick with laws from coast to coast—man’s laws, not God’s—and if you cut them down—and you’re just the man to do it—d’you really think you could stand upright in the winds that would blow then?

I think this line shows how More is getting fed up with the bribes and stupid drama that is surrounding whether or not he will get a certain position. His friends have already gotten positions by playing by other people's rules.

I think you're right Rachel, More does not want to be like the other people around him. He wants to do everything on his terms and he is in the position to do so. More might not have all the power but he has just enough to do things his way.
