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 him 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 industrialization. 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.
