The Poetry of William Morris, Vol. 30 free pdf Excerpt from The Poetry of William Morris, Vol. 30 In an age like this, which has had so much to say about the mission of the poet as a teacher, a thinker, a prophet, an apostle of humanity, and so forth, it may seem strange to some to hear a considerable poet declaring frankly that his chief aim is to give pleasure- but if they will consider how many and various things are included in the giving of pleasure, and will call to mind that the undoubted first object which two of our greatest poets, Chaucer and Shakespeare, had in view, was the amusement of their contemporaries, it need no longer excite surprise. But what does excite surprise, and what seems to place Mr. Morris in a peculiar position, is the close limitation to which he deliberately commits himself in his choice of subjects and means of treatment. Not only does he say to us, my object is simply to amuse you by telling you stories, but he adds also that these stories shall be essentially of only one class- ministering to only one kind of pleasure- and built up of only certain materials to which he confines himself, neglecting or ignoring others, many of them the very ones which we should have expected of a follower of Chaucer, that he would seek out and attempt to use among the very first. And when considering his poems together, we note the effect of this limitation upon them, it is impossible to avoid wishing, perhaps an idle wish, that the poet had either not found it necessary to be content to keep within such bounds, or else that he had more clearly recognized and more zealously guarded against the almost inevitable prolixity and monotony to which writings of such a length attempted under such conditions, must always be most dangerously exposed. But, except as regards some few, and these generally minor, points of technical treatment, it is idle to lament or blame an artist's limitations.
