A Man For All Seasons

Posted by S.A.Mallal on April 11, 2008 at 21:51:

This question is with reference to Robert Bolt's famous book (play) about the story of Sir Thomas More titled 'A Man For All Seasons'. Can you please explain to me what does the phrase 'a man for all seasons' really mean when applied to Sir Thomas More? Does it mean a man for all times to come or a man for all occasions or something else?
