The story of the Glittering Plain : which has been also called the Land of living men or the Acre of the undying by William Morris( Book )

2 editions published between 1891 and 1894 in English and held by 137 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

When Hallblithe's betrothed is carried off in a strage ship, he sets off alone on a long search for her over land and sea. This leads him through many exciting adventures, first on the Isle of Ransom and then on the Glittering Plain, or the Acre of the Undying, where men find eternal youth. In this false paradise he is disappointed again, but learns of the purpose of the abduction--to lure him away--and makes his escape to continue the search. The strange, semi-medieval language which Morris creates is wonderfully evocative of the distant past, and this exotic and often comic story is one of his most fresh and colourful romances

A groundbreaking fantasy novel, The Wood Beyond the World tells the story of a young man, Golden Walter, who finds himself in a strange and frightening world after being abandoned by his wife and lost at sea. The novel takes the form of Walter's quest for the visionary Maid that he sees at the beginning of his journey, and takes him from his failed marriage through temptation to fulfillment. Set in Morris's imaginative recreation of a medieval world, the novel is full of vivid imagery and surprising emotional realism
The nature of Gothic : a chapter of the Stones of Venice by John Ruskin( Book )

1 edition published in 1892 in English and held by 103 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In its indictment of meaningless modern labour and its celebration of medieval architecture, The Nature of Gothic could be called the foundation stone of Morris's aesthetic and purpose in life. Forty years after he first read it, Morris chose Ruskin's test for one of the first books to be published at his Kelmscott Press, using his own Golden type ... The Kelmscott Nature of Gothic encapsulates the meeting of two remarkable minds and embodies their influence on word, image and design"--Page 4 of cover

1 edition published in 1892 in English and held by 85 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This early work by William Morris was originally published in 1886 and we are now republishing it with a brand new introductory biography. William Morris was born in London, England in 1834. 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. We are republishing these classic works in affordable, high quality, modern editions, using the original text and artwork
Syr Ysambrace( Book )

1 edition published in 1897 in English and held by 83 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
