Product description

Title: William Morris

His Homes and Haunts

By The Countess of Warwick

With Twelve Drawings in Crayon by A Forestier and other illustrations

Extract from the Preface:

The examination of a great and arresting personality - whether it be a good or bad one, as the world judges - is always a fascinating work. The human mind is the most complex, and therefore the most mysterious, thing in nature: the study of it the most difficult, and therefore the most engrossing of pursuits. Perhaps the subject of this book, William Morris, at once artist, poet, craftsmen, manufacturer, and politician, presents one of the most elusive problems ever put before the student of human nature. Not only is his life history fascinating by reason of its sheer diversity and comprehensiveness, but there is the satisfactory thought that, viewed as a whole, it reveals the highest levels of human flight. In the mind of the present writer, at least, Morris is a perfect expression of the type of personality for which the Utopian impulse of the reformer is forever seeking.

Francis Evelyn Warwick
