Socialist, philosopher, and poet William Morris (1834 - 1896) was at the center of the design renaissance of the 1880s, not only because of his celebrated hostility to aspects of machine culture, but because of his success as a designer and businessman whose work had enormous influence on the next generation of artists, craftsmen, and designers.
"A very readable and enjoyable book. It is not so much a biography of William Morris as a consideration of him as a political and esthetic phenomenon and as the founder of a number of organizations - the Century Guild, the Arts Workers Guild, and the Arts and Crafts Exhibition Society. Dr. Stansky examines them with a learning that is never pedantic, frequently humorous and always intelligent." (The New York Times book review)
Peter Stansky is professor of history at Stanford University and the author of numerous works on British history.
