The Poetic visions of William Blake
Blake is the most mystic of the English painters, perhaps the only true mystic. He was ingenious in his inner imagination, and his interpretations of ancient and modern poets reveal as true and candid a spirit as the title of his first work – poems he composed, illustrated and set to music, Songs of Innocence and Songs of Experience.
William Morris – Eine Revolutionäre Triebkraft im Viktorianischen Großbritannien
Einige Jahre lang war Morris im Wesentlichen mit seiner Firma und mit den verschiedensten Kunsthandwerken beschäftigt. Er versuchte, wie ein Künstler zu leben, der sich nicht um andere Dinge schert. Er bezog 1871 mit Rossetti ein wunderbares altes, in seinem utopischen Roman News from Nowhere (Kunde von Nirgendwo) beschriebenes Haus am Oberlauf der Themse, das Kelmscott Manor House.
William Morris – A Revolutionary Force in Victorian Britain
For some years Morris was mainly occupied with his different arts and his business, and still tried to live like an artist unconcerned with other matters. In 1871 he took with Rossetti a beautiful old house on the Upper Thames called Kelmscott Manor House, which he has described in News from Nowhere.
William Morris (English version)
William Morris was one of the most emblematic personalities of the nineteenth century. Painter, architect, poet and engineer, wielding the quill as well as the brush, he jolted Victorian society by discarding standards established by triumphant industry. His commitment to the writing of the Socialist Manifesto was the logical result of the revolution he personified in his habitat, the form of his design and the colours he used.
