News from Nowhere and Other Writings Paperback

Edited by Clive Wilmer



Poet, pattern-designer, environmentalist and maker of fine books, William Morris (1834 96) was also a committed socialist and visionary writer, obsessively concerned with the struggle to achieve a perfect society on earth.

News From Nowhere, one of the most significant English works on the theme of utopia, is the tale of William Guest, a Victorian who wakes one morning to find himself in the year 2102 and discovers a society that has changed beyond recognition into a pastoral paradise, in which all people live in blissful equality and contentment.

A socialist masterpiece, News From Nowhere is a vision of a future free from capitalism, isolation and industrialisation.

This volume also contains a wide selection of Morris's writings, lectures, journalism and letters, which expand upon the key themes of News From Nowhere.
