Read full description of the books:
Morris wrote before the socialist and Communist revolutions of the 20th century, and the ensuing disaster for the "working classes", as well as the middle classes.
Morris's vision was an essentially romantic one, where equality prevails and where ordinary people do productive and satisfying work, and live in humane and beautiful communities. This is not the same vision as that of the modern left, as there is a certain "conservatism" in Morris. Therefore this book is a real mix, but is nonetheless worthwhile. Boris railed against the inhumanity of the mechanisation of society, in some of the same ways as did the Inklings, J. R. R. Tolkien and CS Lewis.

Read information about the authorWilliam Morris was an English architect, furniture and textile designer, artist, writer, socialist and Marxist associated with the Pre-Raphaelite Brotherhood and the English Arts and Crafts Movement. Morris wrote and published poetry, fiction, and translations of ancient and medieval texts throughout his life. His best-known works include The Defence of Guenevere and Other Poems (1858), The Earthly Paradise (1868–1870), A Dream of John Ball and the utopian News from Nowhere. He was an important figure in the emergence of socialism in Britain, founding the Socialist League in 1884, but breaking with the movement over goals and methods by the end of that decade. He devoted much of the rest of his life to the Kelmscott Press, which he founded in 1891. The 1896 Kelmscott edition of the Works of Geoffrey Chaucer is considered a masterpiece of book design.
