Redeemed Loser. Art World and Real World in William Morris
|Author: ||Coelsch-Foisner, Sabine|
Interprets Morris's early work in terms of unifying concepts as both derivable from and traceable in his aesthetic theory. The chapters are designed dialectically, hinging on the premise that contrast - both thematic and stylistic - represents the rationale of Morris's romances and poems. A brief survey of tendencies in the critical evaluation of his work is included.
