Summary
Set over a century after a revolutionary upheaval in 1952, these 'Chapters from a Utopian Romance' recount the character William Guest's journey across London and up the Thames to Kelmscott Manor, Morris's own country house in Oxfordshire. Drawing on the work of John Ruskin and Karl Marx, Morris's book is not only astatement of his egalitarian convictions but also a distinctive contribution to the utopian tradition.
