Read full description of the books Wood Beyond the World:In a geographically vague medieval milieu, a wealthy merchant's son (who wants to escape from an unfaithful wife, and who is haunted by strange waking visions of a lady, her servant girl, and a dwarf) goes to sea on one of his father's ships. A storm drives the vessel off course, and he lands in an unknown country in which magic works, and where he will find both danger and romance.
Read information about the authorWilliam Morris was an English architect, furniture and textile designer, artist, writer, socialist and Marxist associated with the Pre-Raphaelite Brotherhood and the English Arts and Crafts Movement. Morris wrote and published poetry, fiction, and translations of ancient and medieval texts throughout his life. His best-known works include The Defence of Guenevere and Other Poems (1858), The Earthly Paradise (1868–1870), A Dream of John Ball and the utopian News from Nowhere. He was an important figure in the emergence of socialism in Britain, founding the Socialist League in 1884, but breaking with the movement over goals and methods by the end of that decade. He devoted much of the rest of his life to the Kelmscott Press, which he founded in 1891. The 1896 Kelmscott edition of the Works of Geoffrey Chaucer is considered a masterpiece of book design.
