Michael Rosen argues that Morris' socialist poetry was part of a long tradition of protest writing and a signpost for future struggles. This volume includes work that has not been published since first appearing as propaganda in The Commonweal, the paper of Morris' Socialist League. It also includes the complete Chants for Socialists. Although poetry was a small part of his enormous written output, it is integral to understanding the level of commitment to change that William Morris felt. The poems also inspire and encourage those who want to create a better society.
