William Morris

Signs of Change


Signs of Change is a collection of talks and writing for the Commonweal produced by William Morris during the 1880s, and first published as a book in 1888. Together they make the best summaries of William Morris's fusion of Marxism with his deep knowledge of mediaeval history and his unique ideas on art and the nature of work.

This version is taken from the from the 1896 Longmans, Green, and Co. edition, originally prepared by David Price for Project Gutenberg, and converted to XHTML by Graham Seaman.
