About the Book

The Wood Beyond the World is a fantasy novel by William Morris, with the component of the supernatural. It was first distributed in hardcover by Morris' Kelmscott Press, in 1894. The book's significance in the history of fantasy literature was perceived by its republication by Ballantine Books in 1969.When the wife of Golden Walter betrays him for another man, he ventures out from home on a journey to stay away from a quarrel with his family. He has a dream of three figures: a stately Lady, his House Maid, and a Draf in a yellow hood. The Dwarf uncovers that Walter has wandered into the place where there is the Woman, who keeps an excellent house at the core of the wood. Walter and the House Maid are pursued by a Dwarf who claims that the Maid has killed the stately Lady. The HouseMaid uncovers that she welcomed the King's Son to her bed, and cast a glamour over him such that he looked like Walter.At the point when the Lady went into the room, she believed him to be an untrustworthy Walter and killed him in his sleep; the House Maid then, killed the Lady with a knife. They proclaim their affection for each other, and Walter breaks the Servant's iron ring.

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.
