    1 thought on “William Morris: Romantic to Revolutionary”

    1. "History has remembered the kings and warriors because they destroyed; Art has remembered the people because they created." William Morris William Morris sits atop the house of history like a weathervane turning against the prevailing winds rather than with them. One of the earliest British socialists, he abhorred modernity. An entrepreneurial spirit of manifold passions, he preferred the middle ages to the Renaissance. To the manor born (1834), cultivated as an effete poet with other rich and e [...]

    2. (notes refer to the 2011 PM Press edition, Read this 800+ page monster on the beach in mexicogood timesI've been on a Morris kick recently. This is a biography of Morris that emphasizes his involvement with the English socialist/communist movement. As such, the long section on infighting within the various socialists groups, etc. was not so exciting to me, but in general this book paints a very complete picture of Morris and his thoughts. It is hard to call oneself a communist these days, as peo [...]

    3. Since I am more interested in William Morris's visual arts theories and activities, and the Arts and Crafts and anti-Scrape movements, and less in the evolution of his politics and his contribution to Britian's socialist movement in the mid- to late 1800s, I was bored to death by the minute detail of this book. It would be of value to political historians and to those who were utterly fascinated by every twist and turn of Morris's mind as he evolved from a "romantic" to a self-described communis [...]

    4. Insightful and brilliant. There are several moments throughout the book when we are no longer reading about Morris’ life, or trying to make something practical of his thought, but rather probing into Thompson’s own interpretation of it in a way that is both deliberately subjective and really enriching. I was absolutely absorbed by the latter’s enthusiasm and dedication to his subject. Thompson’s assumptions are never final, conclusive, contained in themselves. In the years that follow hi [...]

    5. A splendid, comprehensive biographical study of this great English artist, poet, and revolutionary--balanced, compassionate, admiring without being hagiographic. It includes a brilliant meditation on the function of utopia drawn from the work of Michel Abensour. One of Thompson's greatest early works.

    6. I read parts of this for a research paper I wrote about William Morris for my nineteenth-century European history class. This book is one that I'll probably revisit at some point so I can read it in entirety.

    7. So far so good, the "Into" is a little hard to get through so I skipped it. The actual biography is wonderful. A tome of a book, definitely a book for a season.And I've hit the pause button on this one for a while.

    8. e.p. thompson's first book. a political life of william morris, the great voice in the wilderness against the "shoddiness" of modern life.

    9. pp 26-7The term ‘romance’ and the opposition between ‘romance’ and ‘realism’ is confusing rather than helpful. Romance, a specialized form of literature in which an imaginary world with its own laws is created, only distantly related to the world of living experience, has little or nothing in common with Blake’s songs, or Wordsworth’s lyrics, Keat’s Odes, Shelley’s Masque of Anarchy or The Defence of Guenevere. Moreover, even the word romantic has unfortunate associations tod [...]
