Beautifully told. I have tried to read this book a couple times and found the language a bit dense and archaic for my tastes. Kisners42 Jul 15, The second of Morris's pioneering fantasy novels moves beyond the tentative world-making of 'The Wood Beyond The World' and presents a much more expansive milieu of darker magic and more troubled characters.

Plot summary: Stolen as a child and raised in the wood of Evilshaw as servant to a witch, Birdalone ultimately escapes in her captress's magical boat, in which she travels to a succession of strange and wonderful islands. Among these is the Isle of Increase Unsought, an island cursed with boundless production, which Morris intended as a parable of contemporary Britain and a vehicle for his socialistic beliefs.
Equally radical, during much of the first quarter of the novel, Birdalone is naked, a highly unusual detail in Victorian fiction.
