The Pre-Raphaelite movement of writers and artists was a poetic, socialistic and philosophical revolt against accepted values. John Ruskin, its first influencial supporter, had lasting effect. Through the versatile genius of William Morris, ideas ranged through the seminal works of Thomas More, Karl Marx and Oscar Wilde. Ruskin's marriage break-up and the implicit menage a trois in which Rosetti, Morris and Morris's wife were involved; Swinburne's destruction of prohibitions; and Ruskin's attack on Whistler, are all woven into this fascinating account of the Movement. 28 photos.
