The Sundering Flood

by William Morris
The Sundering Flood - William Morris 8.00   1

The Sundering Flood, among the last of Morris's works, was published in 1897, after his death. The beautiful prose and rich use of language are typical of Morris and fill the reader with a sense of awe and wonder.

The 'flood' of the title is nothing less than a river, metaphorically as well as literally dividing two lovers. And there is fantasy, too: dwarf folk, a magic sword, and an ageless warrior to mentor the hero.
