News from Nowhere
Broadview Press, 2002 M10 11 - 356 páginas
Written in 1890, at the close of William Morris’s most intense period of political activism, News from Nowhere is a compelling articulation of his mature views on art, work, community, family, and the nature and structure of the ideal society. A utopian narrative of a future society, it is also an immensely entertaining novel.
This Broadview edition includes a wide variety of contextualizing documents, including portions of Morris’s essays, lectures, and journalism; excerpts from precursor utopian texts; writings on Bloody Sunday, art, work, and revolution; and contemporary reviews.

A good edition of Morris' writings. "News from Nowhere" provides an interesting utopian perspective, though there's not a whole lot of depth to it. Some of the included essays are quite good, and I enjoyed reading his "Aims on Founding the Kelmscott Press." Leer comentario completo
