News from Nowhere:Or, an epoch of rest : being some chapters from a Utopian romance William Morris, Mary M. Bernheim
News from Nowhere (1890) is the best-known prose work of William Morris. The novel describes the encounter between a visitor from the 19th century, William Guest, and a decentralized and humane socialist future. Set over a century after a revolutionary upheaval in 1952, these ´Chapters from a Utopian Romance´ recount his journey across London and up the Thames to Kelmscott Manor, Morris´s own country house in Oxfordshire. Drawing on the work of John Ruskin and Karl Marx, Morris´s audiobook is not only an evocative statement of his egalitarian convictions but also a distinctive contribution to the utopian tradition. Morris´s rejection of state socialism and his ambition to transform the relationship between humankind and the natural world, give News from Nowhere a particular resonance for modern readers. 1.
