Perpetuating the memory of one of the greatest men of the Victorian age

In Defence of Henry Halliday Sparling

March 23, 2019 14.15 at The Coach House, Kelmscott House

Henry Halliday Sparling, who was briefly and unhappily married to May Morris from 1890 to 1894, has often been portrayed as feeble and ineffectual. In this talk Peter Faulkner will discuss whether this is a fair judgment on the author of The Kelmscott Press and William Morris Master-Craftsman.

Peter Faulkner is a former editor of the Journal of William Morris Studies, former honorary secretary of the William Morris Society and taught English at the Universities of Durham and Exeter.
