Abstract:

William Morris held that art was everybody's business, whether they are themselves artists or not. By art he didn't mean merely pictures or statues, but all the work of men's hands. He made beautiful things for himself and others, feeling that beauty is the result of men who are happy in their work and lives--ugliness is tied to unhappiness. Morris believed that one of the chief ills of modern society was that most people had to work at jobs that were joyless--and it was against that joylessness that he rebelled. His fight was against a barbarism caused by joyless labor, and the discontent that did not know it as a cause.
