About the Author: William Morris

William Morris was an English architect, furniture and textile designer, artist, writer, socialist and Marxist associated with the Pre-Raphaelite Brotherhood and the English Arts and Crafts Movement. Morris wrote and published poetry, fiction, and translations of ancient and medieval texts throughout his life. His best-known works include The Defence of Guenevere and Other Poems (1858), The Earthly Paradise (1868–1870), A Dream of John Ball and the utopian News from Nowhere. He was an important figure in the emergence of socialism in Britain, founding the Socialist League in 1884, but breaking with the movement over goals and methods by the end of that decade. He devoted much of the rest of his life to the Kelmscott Press, which he founded in 1891. The 1896 Kelmscott edition of the Works of Geoffrey Chaucer is considered a masterpiece of book design.

A generation J.R.R.Tolkien, William Morris invented the modern heroic fantasy, popularized in Lord of the Rings. Although he is best known for The Wood Beyond the World, and The Well at World's End, this novel is actually his first heroic fantasy. The Glittering Plain is the flip side of Morris' famous Utopian novel News from Nowhere. Icelandic and epic in style and tone, it tells of a hero named Hallblithe and his saga to a place of eternal life in search for lost love. Not only is she not there, though . . . Hallblithe discovers it is an eternal life without meaning . . . and must escape! Here is the sweeping and exciting novel of fantasy and enchantment that started it all!
