Kirkus Reviews said of this title: "Charting Morris's career through his poetry, ideas of art, social criticism, political action and theory, Thompson illuminates a wide range of British cultural history, including the Gothic Revival, the Arts and Crafts movement, industrial capitalism, Victorian tastes and manners. Thompson is a first-rate historian with the flame of Romanticism in his breast; hence, this book should be prized for its historical synthesis, factual detail, unabashed ideology and ardor."
