Summary

Students new to the work of William Morris will find the full range of his achievements covered here. The author has carefully placed Morris in the context of the Victorian age, but has also suggested the relevance of his ideas today. The six chapters are organised biographically and cover all aspects of Morris#xE2;#xAC;"s work in poetry, fiction, design and socialist politics. The emphasis is on his continuous struggle against the age in which he lived, seen as an idealism which went through various stages from the wistfulness of The Earthly Paradise through the practical activities of the firm of Morris#xE2;#xAC;"s later years. The book quotes freely from writings by Morris not easily accessible at present and gives an overall account from which the student can develop his specialist interests. It should appeal to sixth-formers and undergraduates interested in the Victorian period, as seen through one of its most striking personalities.
