Pontius Pilate by Ann Wroe

Book Description

A finalist for the Samuel Johnson Prize and the W.H. Smith Award brings Pontius Pilate, the man and myth, to life. Working from classical sources, Wroe takes readers to biblical Judea under the reign of the erratic and licentious emperor Tiberius to witness the trial of Jesus, in all its confusion, from the point of view of his executioner.

Six Facets of Light by Ann Wroe Six Facets of Light, Hardback (April 2016)

Goethe claimed to know what light was. Galileo and Einstein both confessed they didn't. On the essential nature of light, and how it operates, the scientific jury is still out. This is a portrait of the transitoriness, randomness, swiftness, frustrations and quicksilver beauty that are the essence of light.

Orpheus by Ann Wroe Orpheus, Paperback (July 2012)

For at least two and a half millennia, the figure of Orpheus has haunted humanity. Half-man, half-god, musician, magician, theologian, poet and lover, his story never leaves us. The author goes in search of Orpheus, from the forests where he walked and the mountains where he worshipped to the artefacts, texts and philosophies built up round him.

Being Shelley by Ann Wroe Being Shelley, Paperback (July 2008)

Four questions consumed Shelley and coloured everything he wrote. Who, or what, was he? What was his purpose? Where had he come from? And where was he going? He sought the answers in order to free and empower not only himself, but the whole human race.

Perkin by Ann Wroe Perkin, Paperback (May 2004)

A young man suddenly emerged claiming to be Richard of York, the younger of the Princes in the Tower. As such, he tormented Henry vii for eight years. He tried three times to invade England and behaved like a prince. Officially, however, he was proclaimed to be Perkin Warbeck, the son of a Flemish boatman.
