William Morris and the Idea of Community

Anna Vaninskaya

Edinburgh University Press

This chapter introduces the socialist hybrids, which were formed by the socialist movement and its propaganda. It discusses hybrid utopia and the fin de siècle socialist movement. It notes that ideological heterogeneity was not limited to social and political practice, and that it could be observed in two different socialist novels of the Edwardian period. The chapter also considers the transformation of an antithesis from synchronic to diachronic and the ‘disintegration of communalism’ myth.

Keywords:   socialist hybrids, socialist movement, propaganda, hybrid utopia, fin de siècle socialist movement, ideological heterogeneity, socialist novels, Edwardian period, communalism
