From Time Magazine's Books Section of December 14, 1936: "One of the few great British writers whose reputation has not bloomed abroad as well as at home is William Morris, Pre-Raphaelite, craftsman, for whom the Morris chair was named, child prodigy (he read the Waverly novels at the age of 4) , interior decorator, architect, wealthy Socialist, amazingly prolific poet and creator of stained glass windows. Morris was the leading figure among British Socialists when George Bernard Shaw, 22 years younger, first met him. Shaw, author of five unpublished novels, principally known as a speaker in seething, rapidly-shifting London radical circles, was editing a small magazine at that time. To fill its pages he reached into the treasury of his unpublished fiction, one sample of which so entertained Morris that he asked to meet the author. The result was a friendship that lasted as long as Morris lived. Last week Shaw offered U. S. Readers his pleasant reminiscences of his friend in a 52-page memoir originally published in England as the foreword to a monumental, expensive biography of Morris written by his daughter.
