Originally published in 1868, ‘The Earthly Paradise’ is considered William Morris’s most popular poem. An epic poem that features legends, myths and stories from Europe, sectioned into the twelve months of the year.

Highly recommended for inclusion on the bookshelf of anyone with a passion for poetry. William Morris (1834 – 1896) was born in London, England. Arguably best known as a textile designer, he founded a design partnership which deeply influenced the decoration of churches and homes during the early 20th century. However, he is also considered an important Romantic writer and pioneer of the modern fantasy genre, being a direct influence on authors such as J. R. R. Tolkien. As well as fiction, Morris penned poetry and essays.
