The Defence of Guenevere and Other Poems

Read by LibriVox Volunteers

(4 stars; 2 reviews)

This is a volume of early narrative poems by William Morris, first published in 1858. While at the time of writing the most important stages of William Morris' career are still ahead of him, his ideas are already reflected in many of the poems. Many of the poems share an exceedingly sombre tone, and were appreciated by the public only years after they were first published. - Summary by Carolin (3 hr 31 min)
