We know William Morris primarily as the creator of sumptuous patterns of leaves, flowers, and vines in his wallpapers and fabrics. But as a poet and part of the Pre-Raphaelite Brotherhood in Victorian England, he was a passionate advocate for the art and craftsmanship he perceived as being lost to industrial manufacturing, as well as a campaigner for the preservation of ancient buildings. This Morris miscellany collects some of his most notable thoughts on such subjects as objects of beauty, aesthetics in the living space, being a dreamer, and making an earthly paradise.
