Theory and Practice I, 1870–1883

  • Kevin A. Morrison
Chapter

Abstract

This chapter focuses on the early years in which Morley assumed responsibility for parenting his wife’s two children from a previous relationship as well as his nephew, whom he adopted. It documents how Morley attempted to put theory, which he formulated in his writings of the previous decade, into practice. Unearthing new details about the family’s second residence, the chapter also shows, by reconstructing the spaces of his home, how Morley’s liberal ideas were lived and elaborated within a physical environment.
