    About William Morris. William Morris (24 March – 3 October ) was a revolutionary force in Victorian Britain: his work as an artist, designer, craftsman, writer and socialist dramatically changed the fashions and ideologies of the era. Morris, the revolutionary aesthete, is a thicket for the biographer, but Bradley manages a tight weave of his twists of thought, his varied labors, his prodigious personality in a brief book that, moreover, sparkles with anecdotes, quotes, and pictures. The young Morris' passion for nature and for things medieval bears issue first in art&#;notably his own fabric and wallpaper .
