Excerpt from Tales From the Earthly Paradise The Earthly Paradise was written by William Morris in 1868-1870. It is a treasure-house of lovely old-world tales, mainly Greek and Northern, told in a series of narrative poems arranged not unlike Chaucer's Canterbury Tales. A company of seafarers who had failed to find the Earthly Paradise, their heart's desire, are thrown on an island in the West inhabited by a colony of Greeks, as told in the Prologue. Here they are kindly received by the islanders, and for a year twice a month at feast time a tale of old is told in turn by the Greeks and the Norwegians. From these twenty-four stories twelve have been selected and here rendered for children, largely in Morris own words, and, it is hoped, in such a way that later they will turn with interest to The Earthly Paradise, the work of a distinguished poet.
