William Morris is Online. Are you?

 

Morris Edition Online

There are wonderful websites that allow us to access a variety of Victorian and Edwardian literature. That means that our students can also access this information (without paying the exorbitant prices charged for doorstop anthologies at the university bookshop).

I list a few examples to the right but I want to focus on one particular site today. Morris Edition Online. This website is very simple but it includes flip-books and txt editions of various work by William Morris. My favourite part of this site is the inclusion of flip books for the Kelmscott editions of his work. So much of what William Morris contributed to literature was visual. His design skills helped to revolutionize the reading experience of the 1890s. I believe that we need to share Morris’s material innovations if we are to appreciate his place in Victorian Culture. Perhaps this website will help.
