You might be interested to know that a retired Australian academic, Alex Jones, has just published a novel titled Morris in Iceland, in which the life of William Morris and the music of Bjork are the stuff of a modern opera. You'll find details on the publisher's website http://www.puncherandwattmann.com/pwmorris.html
