This biographical study is a window into 19th-century British society and the life of William Morris—the great craftsman, architect, designer, poet, and writer—who remains a monumental and influential figure to this day. This account chronicles how his concern with artistic and human values led him to cross what he called the “river of fire” and become a committed socialist—committed not only to the theory of socialism but also to the practice of it in the day-to-day struggle of working women and men in Victorian England. While both the British Labor Movement and the Marxists have venerated Morris, this legacy of his life proves that many of his ideas did not accord with the dominant reforming tendencies, providing a unique perspective on Morris scholarship.

William Morris (1834–96) was an English poet, decorative artist, translator, romance writer, book designer, preservationist, socialist theorist, and political activist, whose admirers have been drawn to the sheer intensity of his artistic endeavors and efforts to live up to radical ideals of social justice. This Companion draws together historical and critical responses to the impressive range of Morris’s multi-faceted life and activities: his homes, travels, family, business practices, decorative artwork, poetry, fantasy romances, translations, political activism, eco-socialism, and book collecting and design. Each chapter provides valuable historical and literary background information, reviews relevant opinions on its subject from the late-nineteenth century to the present, and offers new approaches to important aspects of its topic. Morris’s eclectic methodology and the perennial relevance of his insights and practice make this an essential handbook for those interested in art history, poetry, translation, literature, book design, environmentalism, political activism, and Victorian and utopian studies.

This title takes a comprehensive look at Morris's gardens and flowers, setting out to shed new light on the life and work of this passionate yet practical individual. It looks at his childhood, his student days at Oxford before turning to his own homes and gardens such as Red House and the Abbey Works at Merton. Morris's own words and those of his daughter May show his very personal approach to flowers and gardens and how his ideas anticipated the theories of William Robinson and Gertrude Jekyll.

This is the first comprehensive survey of the colourful ceramic tiles produced by Morris & Company. From the earliest examples made for Red House to the tiles produced in the twentieth century, all the many different designs are illustrated and discussed in detail. Richard and Hilary Myers are proud to include a previously unrecorded tile panel among the many little-known examples described in this book. Found in a Sussex church, the panel takes its place with such masterpieces as the overmantel at Queens' College, Cambridge, and the Membland panels. All Morris & Co.'s tile designs are analysed and linked to related stained-glass, textile or graphic work produced by the Firm. The authors reveal the various contributions of individual designers, including Edward Burne-Jones, D. G. Rossetti, Ford Madox Brown, Kate Faulkner and William Morris himself. Morris & Co.'s connections with the Dutch tileries, William de Morgan, Murray Marks and Barnard, Bishop & Barnard, and the roles they played in the production and distribution of the tiles, are all thoroughly examined.

These volumes continue the only complete edition of the surviving correspondence of William Morris (1834- 1896), a protean figure who exerted a major influence as poet, craftsman, master printer, and designer. Covering the years 1881 through 1888, they treat the most dramatic period in another facet of Morris's career: his work as a political activist. Originally published in 1988. The Princeton Legacy Library uses the latest print-on-demand technology to again make available previously out-of-print books from the distinguished backlist of Princeton University Press. These editions preserve the original texts of these important books while presenting them in durable paperback and hardcover editions. The goal of the Princeton Legacy Library is to vastly increase access to the rich scholarly heritage found in the thousands of books published by Princeton University Press since its founding in 1905.
