An 'Impossibilist' Socialist?
William Morris and the
Politics of Socialist Revolution
versus Social Reform
Colin Skelly

In a recent article in the Journal of the William Morris Society it has been argued that the anti-parliamentary socialism of the Socialist League (SL) and Morris in particular divided revolutionary socialists from the left and led to a predominantly non-revolutionary Labour party in Britain.’ Here I will argue rather the opposite, that Morris represented part of a political trend that propagated revolutionary aims against a rival stream of political development that culminated in the formation of the Labour party.
