Excerpt from The Triumph of the Philistines: And How Mr. Jorgan Preserved the Morals of Market Pewbury Under Very Trying Circumstances, a Comedy in Three Acts

I have been constantly accused of preach ing in my plays, and have never been able to discover on what foundation this accusation rested. Probably it arose from the fact that for many years I have been reiterating a few very plain, simple rules which will have to be comprehended and acted upon before we can pretend to have anything worthy to be called an English national drama. But there is no more preaching in these rules than there would be if, in a degenerate and degraded condition of carpentry, a carpenter were to give a few simple rules in the art of making honest tables and window-sashes. But it is the habit of the Englishman to] sniff for doctrine everywhere.

The late William Morris held Socialist meetings at Kelmscott House on Sunday evenings. A Hammersmith woman with a luminous notion of his peculiar tenets was seen to point out his house to a neighbor.
