William Morris is often cited as influencing modern fantasy, and I was wondering if there were fantasy writers over the past century who stated that Morris was an influence -- or at least that they read him? Oscar Wilde, E.R. Eddison, W.B. Yeats, Tolkien and Lewis all cited him as influences, but I haven't come across direct references to him in interviews or essays by other fantasy authors. I'd be curious if anyone had any sources for his direct influence (rather than the "inventor of secondary worlds" tag that is often used since Lin Carter).
