Crossing The River Of Fire : The Socialism of William Morris
The common perception of William Morris is as a stuffy Victorian, a man who designed wallpaper, a utopian who sought refuge from the industrial world in medieval fantasy. But he also wrote novel, poetry and translated Icelandic sagas, he wrote on politics, architecture and the state of art under a growing industrial capitalism and what possibilities existed for the future. Hassan Mahamdallie argues here that the socialism of Morris grew out of his view of the past and his hatred of for a system of shoddy' production.'
