William Morris, his literary contributions, his crafts, his political and social theories, presented to the reader who is unaware of his importance today. A man ahead of his time, he launched many new movements, but sowed the seed of others for which his generation was not ready. An exhaustive and meticulous study of his life and work; of the inner meanings, the backgrounds, of his love of the mediaeval and of the arts of the northlands. His friends. His establishment of his own ideas, in a form that did not fit into the Socialism of his day. Little of the intimate, personal story. Limited. Public Library and College market.
