Synopsis:

And ever the great bell overhead Boom'd in the wind a knell for the dead -- Though no one toll'd it, a knell for the dead! -- "The Blue Closet" William Morris (1834-1896), author of such prose romances as The Well at the World's End, was early associated with the Pre-Raphaelites -- as is nowhere more evident than in the Medievalist verses and verse-dramas in his earliest collection of poetry, The Defense of Guenevere, and Other Poems. Here Morris explores many of the ideas and themes that would provide continued inspiration throughout his long and influential career -- especially those arising out of the Arthurian tradition, such as "King Arthur's Tomb," and "Sir Galahad, A Christmas Mystery."

About the Author:

William Morris ( 1834 - 1896) was an English textile designer, poet, novelist, translator and socialist activist. Associated with the British Arts and Crafts Movement, he was a major contributor to the revival of traditional British textile arts and methods of production. His literary contributions helped to establish the modern fantasy genre, while he played a significant role in propagating the early socialist movement in Britain.
