A prolific poet and prose author, his best known written work is ''News from Nowhere'' (1890), a {{utopia}}n novel depicting the idyllic agrarian society he hoped would be created following a socialist revolution. His pseudo-medieval {{fantas|y}}ies, such as ''The Wood Beyond the World'' (1894) and ''The Well at the World’s End'' (1896) were a key influence on both Creator/JRRTolkien and Creator/CSLewis.
