The life of William Morris (1834-1896) is revealed in significant new detail by his complete surviving correspondence, brought together here for the first time and including many previously unpublished letters. This collection not only bears witness to Morris's day-to-day activities and friendships, but also reflects his keen response to landscape and architecture, his sense of social responsibility, and his interest in the techniques of the applied arts. Volume I covers Morris's student days at Oxford and marriage to Jane Burden; the first twenty years of Morris and Co.; his success as a poet with the publication of The Earthly Paradise; his two trips to Iceland; the moves to Kelmscott Manor and Kelmscott House; and the start of his socialist career. Originally published in 1984. The Princeton Legacy Library uses the latest print-on-demand technology to again make available previously out-of-print books from the distinguished backlist of Princeton University Press. These editions preserve the original texts of these important books while presenting them in durable paperback and hardcover editions. The goal of the Princeton Legacy Library is to vastly increase access to the rich scholarly heritage found in the thousands of books published by Princeton University Press since its founding in 1905.
