A double-bill of romantic comedies starring Gracie Fields. In 'Queen of Hearts' (1936), lowly seamstress Gracie Perkins (Fields) pretends to be a wealthy supporter of the local arts in order to get a part in an upcoming production. As her deception leads to ever more complications, she eventually wins out, charming one and all to become the star of the show. In 'Look Up and Laugh' (1935), Fields stars as Grace Pearson, one of several clerks in a small town market threatened with closure when the land is purchased by a department store chain. Gutsy Grace rallies the market traders to prevent the takeover - a protest aided by the timely discovery of a Royal Charter, which enables the stallholders to declare their market place an autonomous nation. This was the third film appearance for a 22-year-old Vivien Leigh, who has a bit part.

The Odes of Horace - A Facsimile (Latin, Hardcover, Facsimile edition): William Morris The Odes of Horace - A Facsimile (Latin, Hardcover, Facsimile edition)

William Morris had a lifelong fascination with illuminated books. He collected thirteenth- and fourteenth-century manuscripts and became one of the foremost experts on the art of bookmaking and calligraphy. Aiming to resurrect a tradition that had fallen into abeyance with the invention of printing, he made eighteen illuminated books, using a variety of texts, during the course of his life. One of these, now held in the Bodleian Library, is a handmade edition of the Odes of Horace. The pages of this book, reproduced here in high-quality facsimile, are among the most intricate and ambitious that Morris ever created. Using a Renaissance italic style of calligraphy, he illuminated letters with delicate shades of gold and silver, and adorned them with floral decoration and miniature faces and figures. The openings to each of the four books of the Odes are stunning display pages on which Morris collaborated with the artists Edward Burne-Jones and Charles Fairfax Murray. The Roman poet Horace (65-8 BCE) wrote four books of lyric poetry in Latin which have subsequently been translated many times and have had an ongoing influence on Western literature. He combined descriptions of the everyday with the poetry of politics, patriotism, love and friendship, producing lines of beauty and wisdom which were very popular in Morris's day and continue to appeal in the twenty-first century. This facsimile edition is presented in a blind embossed slipcase featuring a detail from one of Burne-Jones' paintings in the book with a companion volume containing an introduction to William Morris's manuscript and an English translation of the Odes.

Michael Rosen argues that William 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. 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.

They have enlightened, outraged, provoked and comforted. They have enriched lives - and destroyed them.

William Morris was a dreamer with a genius for turning dreams into reality. Self-taught in thirteen different crafts, some of them ancient ones that had died out, he became the greatest European pattern-designer since the Middle Ages. He was, besides, a campaigning socialist and a pioneering environmentalist, a lyric poet and a forceful journalist, a storyteller and a maker of fine books. This volume illustrates the variety of Morris's prose, while focusing on one theme: the earthly paradise. The 'Nowhere' of News from Nowhere (1890) is England in 2102, an ideal pastoral society born out of revolution. It is as compelling a dream of the future as the nightmares of Brave New World and Nineteen Eighty-Four. Exhilaratingly, it reminds us that nothing is inevitable about the way we live - now or in 1890.

With its radical blend of utopian socialism and science fiction, William Morris's novel News from Nowhere caused a stir when it was first published in instalments in the Commonweal in 1890. The narrator William Guest awakens to find himself in a utopian England in the 21st century. Industrial buildings have been transformed into a pastoral paradise; civilians are dressed in 14th-century costume; there is an abundance of openair markets and wooded areas and gardens; and money, prisons and divorce have been abolished. In this vision of a socialist future, individuals have the freedom to choose their own economic and creative pursuits. Two years after its initial publication, the novel became one of the first books printed by Morris's newly founded Kelmscott Press. A copy of this rare edition - only 300 were produced - is held in the National Art Library at the V this publication is a reproduction of that volume. Morris oversaw all aspects of the original production, from the selection of the paper and ink to the choice of his own Golden typeface and the position of the printed matter on the page. The result was a timeless triumph in book design and making. This new edition makes Morris's design available to a wide audience for the first time.

R186 R148 Discovery Miles 1 480 Save R38 (20%) Shipped within 7 - 12 working days

News from Nowhere(1890) is the best-known prose work of William Morris and the only significant English utopia to be written since Thomas More's. The novel describes the encounter between a visitor from the nineteenth century, William Guest, and a decentralized and humane socialist future. Set over a century after a revolutionary upheaval in 1952, these "Chapters from a Utopian Romance" recount his journey across London and up the Thames to Kelmscott Manor, Morris's own country house in Oxfordshire. Drawing on the work of John Ruskin and Karl Marx, Morris's book is not only an evocative statement of his egalitarian convictions but also a distinctive contribution to the utopian tradition. Morris's rejection of state socialism and his ambition to transform the relationship between humankind and the natural world, give News from Nowhere a particular resonance for modern readers. This text is based on the 1891 version, incorporating the extensive revisions made by Morris to the first edition.
