This annotated critical edition is the first attempt to make Morris's 42,000-word verse sequence accessible to a modern audience.


"It is time that a work of such richness and beauty, whatever its flaws, was again made available, and, for that, Routledge and Professor Boos are to be praised without reservation. Boos's introduction is helpful and perceptive." -- Clive Wilmer, The Times Literary Supplement

"Professor Boos is the most prominent of a number of scholars, most of them American and relatively young, who have argued against the poem's neglect, attributing it to our intellectual laziness: a passive acceptance of the modernist reaction against Victorian monuments." -- Clive Wilmer, The Times Literary Supplement
