Where is the utopiaWilliam Morris
The novel “News from Nowhere” is my most impressive part in William Morris Gallery.This soft science fiction describes a Victorian’s unexpected time travel to the year 2102, and the discovery of future society frees from capitalism, isolation and industrialisation. As a socialism, William Morris illustrates an utopia where resources are sharing and the concept of private property is gone.
Just like the audiences of “Back to the future” compare the future scene in the movie with 2015 in reality, I am wondering how does William Morris fell once he witnesses the society nowadays? Look closer to Walthamstow, Morris’s family home in his childhood, can we find any connection between this utopia and the current community?
