This vintage book contains William Morris's 1867 poem, "The Life and Death of Jason: A Poem". It was originally intended as a story to accompany "The Earthly Paradise", a work presented as a poetic collection recounted by Greek travellers who encountered each other whilst seeking out immortality. It is the longest poem on Jason ever written and is the second longest work on the subject after Robert Graves' "Hercules, My Shipmate" (1945). This volume is highly recommended for fans of Morris's work and would make for a worthy addition to any collection. William Morris (1834-1896) was a famous English poet, textile designer, translator, activist, and novelist. Many vintage books such as this are increasingly scarce and expensive. We are republishing this volume now in an affordable, modern edition complete with a specially commissioned new introduction.
