Questions of Travel: William Morris in Iceland

by Lavinia Greenlaw - £9.99  Notting Hill Editions (2017)
paperback    ISBN 13: 9781910749562 | ISBN 10: 1910749567

The Victorian artist and activist William Morris travelled to Iceland in search of an answer to the problem of how to live. His intimate journals, written for a friend, unconsciously explore questions of travel, noting his reaction to the idea of leaving or arriving, to hurry and delay, what it means to dread a place you’ve never been to or to encounter the actuality of a long-held vision.
 
Poet Lavinia Greenlaw draws out these questions as she follows in the footprints of Morris’s prose, responding to its surfaces and undercurrents, extending its horizons. The result is a new and composite work, which brilliantly explores our conflicted reasons for not staying at home.
