    “The Collected Works of William Morris: With Introductions by His Daughter May Morris”, p, Cambridge University Press 37 Copy quote The past is not dead, it is living in us, and will be alive in the future which we are now helping to make.

This is most evident, in the case of The House of the Wolfings, in the way that both works are organized as prose narratives with lengthy intervals in verse. The quality of Morris’s verse is indeed very similar to the verse we see in.
