MORRIS, Alfred
(? -?)
   UK writer whose Looking Ahead!: A Tale of Adventure (Not by the Author of "Looking Backward") (1892) conveys its anti-Edward BELLAMY and anti-socialist argument through a ROBINSONADE plot which involves its young protagonist, shipwrecked with his crew on a desert island, in a series of political experiments. Socialism does not work; monarchy serves well. After half a century, he returns to England, which has gone to ruin after a socialist coup of 1905.
