PREFACE. IN the spring of 1890, the Fabian Society, finding itself at a loss for a course of lectures to occupy its summer meetings, was compelled to make shift with a series of papers put forward under the general heading " Socialism in Contemporary Literature." The Fabian Essayists, strongly pressed to do " something or other," for the most part shook their heads ; but in the end Sydney Olivier consented to " take Zola" ; I consented to " take Ibsen " ; and Hubert Bland undertook to read all the Socialist novels of the day, an enterprise the desperate failure of which resulted in the most amusing paper of the series. William Morris, asked to read a paper on himself, flatly declined, but gave us one on Gothic Architecture.
