William Morris

Hopes and Fears for Art


Hopes and Fears for Art is a collection of talks given by William Morris towards the end of the 1870s, shortly before joining the Socialist Democratic Federation. The talks were first published as a book by Ellis and White in 1882, and were reissued in 1883, 1896, 1898, 1903, 1911, and 1919. This version is taken from the 1919 Longmans, Green and Co. 'Pocket Library' edition, originally prepared by David Price for Project Gutenberg, and converted to XHTML by Graham Seaman.
