"May Morris' 'Introductions' to each of the twenty-four volumes of the 'Collected Works of William Morris' have become classics in themselves as well as illuminating and informative guides to her father's unique place in the art, literature and public affairs of his time. Among many other things, the 'Introductions' contain letters, conversations and accounts of people and events, not found in any other collection of William Morris materials or sources, which provide an opening to the variety, the scope and the meaning of the work of William Morris and his circle; an opening indeed on a large and most significant segment of the English cultural and intellectual movements of the second half of the nineteenth century.
