About the Author:

William Morris was a poet, critic and artist whose love of all things medieval influenced his anachronistic distaste for all things modern. Born in Walthamstow, England on 24 March, 1834 to a life of temperamental ease and indulgence, a predisposition that would define his mood and behavior the remainder of his life, he was an omnivoracious reader who abstained from the general life at his colleges of Marlborough and Exeter College, Oxford. In 1856, he apprenticed to revival architect G.E. Street, and founded the Oxford and Cambridge Magazine, to publish his poetry and provide a soapbox for his views on design and craftsmanship. In 1861, he joined with the artist Edward Burne-Jones, and poet and artist Dante Gabriel Rosetti to profoundly influence the decoration of churches, well into the early 20th century. He became known as much for his stained glass windows, as his textile designs, embroidery and the formation of the Kelmscott Press. Applying the methods of book production prevalent in the Renaissance, it became the most famous of the private press of the Arts and Craft movement. In his later years, he translated Icelandic sagas, medieval and classical works, before devoting the last nine years of his life to writing the fantasy prose for which he is best remembered. He died on 3 October, 1896, and was buried in the family plot at Kelmscott, England.
