Extensively revised, this third edition of The Work of William Morris encompasses the results of recent scholarship, including in particular the new perspectives of feminist scholarship. Thompson examines how Morris's concerns anticipated those of present day environmentalists and explores in full detail Morris's views on child-centered education. Bringing to life his magnetic personality, this biography of one of the original socialists offers insight into Morris's campaign to bring art back to the people.

"There have been several recent studies of William Morris, but Dr. Thompson's approach is original and breaks new ground at many points. In particular, he devotes far more attention to Morris as a craftsman than any previous biographer...I am sure the book will appeal to anyone who wishes to understand Morris and his times, and I have learned from it a number of things which I did not know before. The scholarship is impeccable."--Asa Briggs

"Paul Thompson in this confidently based, precisely considered re-estimate brings the Leonardo of the Victorian into reliable focus."--Wylie Sypher, New York Herald

"Surely if every library had to limit itself to a single work on Morris, this is it."--Antiquarian Bookman's Weekly

"If Thompson's book is not the last word on Morris's is a first word well worth hearing."--Victorian Periodicals Review

"Paul Thompson's study of the work of William Morris has remained a major part of Morris scholarship since its first publication in 1966....Thompson's work is still the standard analysis of William Morris..."--The Historian
