Excerpt from page 5:William Morris, poet , decorative designer and socialist, was born in 1834 at Clay Street, Walthamstow, now almost a suburb of London, at that time a country village in Essex. He went to school at Marl�borough College and thence to Exeter College, Oxford, where he took his degree in 185 7. During his stay in the University the subsequent mode of his life was prepared and foreshadowed in two important direc�tions. Like most poets Morris was not what is called very assiduous "at his book"; the routine of college training was no more an attraction to him than the ordinary amusements and dissipations of undergraduate existence. But he was studious all the same, reading the classics in his own somewhat spasmodic way and exploring with even greater zeal the mysteries of medieval lore.
