The nine lectures and essays collected in this volume represent the most important formulations on art and society that William Morris developed after the joined the socialist Democratic Federation in 1883. In vibrant and compelling prose, they demonstrate that Morris is the true initiator of an extraordinarily creative tradition of radical aesthetics that includes such twentieth-century figures as Georg Lukács, Ernst Bloch, Theodor Adorno, Walter Benjamin, and Raymond Williams.
