About the Book

William Morris, an English novelist, wrote a book titled A Dream of John Ball on the Great Revolt of 1381, sometimes also known as "the Peasants' Revolt." This 1888 novel is a time-travel fantasy in which the modern and medieval eras merge, and it is about the English Peasants Revolt of 1381 and its commander, John Ball. Morris paints a glowing, even utopian picture of the medieval world. The story contrasts the ethics of medieval and contemporary civilization by describing a dream and time-travel encounter between the medieval and modern worlds. The protagonist, Ball learns of the demise of feudalism and the emergence of the Industrial Revolution from a time traveler and Ball acknowledges that his expectations for an egalitarian society in the 19th century have not yet been realized. To read this time-travel fantasy and philosophical novel, readers should go through the collection of essays!

About Author

William Morris

William Morris was born in 1834 in Walthamstow, England. He was one of the great all-rounders, such as a poet, painter, author, translator, political scholar, social reformer, designer, and publisher. The organisations and movements he established ranged from the Arts and Crafts Movement to the Socialist Federation to the Society for the Protection of Ancient Buildings. He started his writing career at Oxford University, where he contributed to and funded the Oxford and Cambridge Magazine. After the Socialist League moved too far from Morris's brand of freedom socialism for him to stay a part of it, he dedicated himself to writing. Initially, these were stories of ancient Germanic legends, and then "Here Be Dragons" became a series of completely fantasy novels, beginning with The Wood Beyond the World and also The Well at the World's End.
