William Morris was hugely productive during the last decade of his life, the s, and when he wasn’t writing important early fantasy novels such as The Wood beyond the World and The Well at the World’s End, he was writing this utopian novel which reflects Morris’s socialist views.

The narrator wakes up in the year to find that England has become a utopian land based on the socialist principles.
