William Morris biography :

The Pre-Raphaelite Brotherhood was formed by group of men who did not approve of the way decorative arts, and architecture were being mass produced industrially. Among them was poet British poet, William Morris.

William Morris was born on 24 March 1834 at the village of Walthamstow. Morris came from a well-to-do family and read at Marborough and Exeter College, Oxford. He met his wife, Jane Burden, as well as some of the other members of the brotherhood at Oxford.

Morris started writing poetry while he was at Oxford, and in 1858, The Defence of Guenevere and Other Poems, a book of poetry, was published. He continued to compose poems even though their architectural business (Morris & Company) thrived. Some of his works include The Life & Death of Jason (1867), The Earthly Paradise (1868), and Volksunga Saga (1870).

In 1883, Morris became a socialist. As a member of the Social Democratic Federation, he became a regular contributor to Justice, the SDF’s journal. He left the SDF in 1884, presumably because he and the party leader, H. H. Hyndman, didn’t see eye to eye with the way the party was being run. He formed the Socialist League, together with three other individuals, and contributed regularly to the new party’s journal.

Morris became an active political writer and some of his works include Chants for Socialists (1883), The Pilgrims of Hope (1885), and the booke News from Nowhere (1889). He also composed Death Song, in memory of his friend, Alfred Linnel, who was injured during one of the many socialist political demonstrations in 1887.

Despite being ill with kidney disease, Morris continued to write and give speeches. In his final years, Morris penned Socialism, Its Growth and Outcome (1893), Manifesto of English Socialists (1893), and The Wood Beyond the World (1894).

William Morris passed away on 03 October 1896. His last work was Well at the World’s End (1896). Morris is buried in the village churchyard of Kelmscott.
