Unto this last, and other writings by John Ruskin( Book )

"The most influential art theorist and critic of his age, an outstanding man of letters, a sensitive painter and draughtsman, Ruskin's social criticism shocked and angered the establishment and many of his admirers. First and foremost an outcry against injustice and inhumanity, 'Unto this last' is also a closely argued assault on the science of political economy, which dominated the Victorian period. Ruskin was a profoundly conservative man who looked back to the Middle Ages as a Utopia, yet his ideas had a considerable influence on the British socialist movement. And in making his powerful moral and aesthetic case against the dangers of unhindered industrialization he was strangely prophetic. This volume shows the astounding range and depth of Ruskin's work, and in an illuminating introduction the editor reveals the consistency of Ruskin's philosophy and his adamant belief that questions of economics, art and science could not be separated from questions of morality. In Ruskin's words, 'There is no wealth but life'"--Back cover
News from nowhere; or, An epoch of rest: being some chapters from a utopian romance by William Morris( Book )

18 editions published between 1993 and 2011 in English and held by 344 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Poet, pattern-designer, environmentalist and maker of fine books, William Morris (1834-96) was also a committed socialist and visionary writer, obsessively concerned with the struggle to achieve a perfect society on earth. News From Nowhere, one of the most significant English works on the theme of utopia, is the tale of William Guest, a Victorian who wakes one morning to find himself in the year 2102 and discovers a society that has changed beyond recognition into a pastoral paradise, in which all people live in blissful equality and contentment. A socialist masterpiece, News From Nowhere is a vision of a future free from capitalism, isolation and industrialisation. This volume also contains a wide selection of Morris's writings, lectures, journalism and letters, which expand upon the key themes of News From Nowhere."--Back cover

Clive Wilmer's New and Collected Poems begins with a fable about the building and destruction of a walled city; it ends with a translation of Mandelstam's 'Hagia Sophia', in which the poet's words construct the heavenly Jerusalem. Between the two is the work of four decades, dominated by wonder at the mortal and the sacred, and a passion for the order made by art. Alongside older poems, two new collections, King Alfred's Book and Report from Nowhere, show Wilmer's continuing engagement with poetry that explores 'the mystery of things'. Over fifty translations, including thirty-six from t
