Publisher Description

by William Morris, ed. Florence Boos. 2 vols. New York and London: Routledge, 2002. xxxix + 687 pp. ; 779 + 1xv pp. Illustrated. $325.00. Florence Boos is to be commended not only for a monumental editorial effort that has led to successful achievement but for her perseverance over several years in a search for a publisher willing to risk the cost of publishing The Earthly Paradise. As she gracefully tells us, "My efforts to find a haven for this edition sometimes seemed to me almost as long as the Wanderers' search for their Earthly Paradise." And that Routledge, with its excellent resources for publicity, has agreed to be the publisher means there will be a fair test to determine whether there is an audience today for Morris' epic--the longest narrative poem in the English language.
