If it hadn’t been for his erratic character, William Morris would have become a monk. When he enrolled at Oxford University, Morris has been a staunch Anglican. He and his co-ed Edward Burne-Jones even thought about going on a “crusade and holy war” against the art and culture of their time. But soon he forgot about that and became an architect, later a poet, than a painter and an artisan, as well as the early founder of the socialist movement in Great Britain.
