Título: The Water of the Wondrous Isles
Editorial: Wildside Press
Condición del libro: New
Tipo de libro: Hardcover
The nineteenth century artist, sculptor, musician, master of all trades and jack of none, is at his brilliant best in this tale of shining waters and shrouded magic. His gentle and spirited heroine, Birdalone, steps forth into the world as freshly and gaily as when Morris first committed her to the written page. Her courage carries her into a remarkable series of all too human adventures despite the wonders and marvels that abound in her enchanted world. Morris uses the honest reality of human relationships and emotions to point up the magicks with which his rich imagination embroiders the story. Equally, the loves and angers, the longings and jealousies of his people are thrown into sharp relief by the somber threat of the Sending Boat in which Birdalone travels or the mad witchery of the Isle of Unsought Increase. Throughout he maintains that mark of the master storyteller-the need to keep turning the page to find out what is going to happen next.About the Author:
William Morris (1834-1896) was an accomplished writer, textile designer and artist. A utopian socialist, he was associated with the Pre-Raphaelite Brotherhood and the English Arts and Craft Movement, and was a founding member of the Socialist League in Britain. Greatly influenced by the medieval period, Morris helped establish the modern fantasy genre though his works The Defence of Guenevere and Other Poems, A Dream of John Ball, and The Well at the World's End. Authors like J.R.R. Tolkien and C.S. Lewis were greatly influenced by works like The House of the Wolfings, The Roots of the Mountains, and The Wood Beyond the World. Morris was also an accomplished publisher, founding the Kelmscott Press in 1891, whose 1896 edition of the Works of Geoffrey Chaucer is considered a masterpiece of book design.
