Questions of Travel: William Morris in Iceland

by Lavinia GreenlawWilliam Morris

The great Victorian William Morris was fascinated by Iceland, which inspired him to write one of the masterpieces of travel literature.

Poet Lavinia Greenlaw follows in his footsteps, combining excerpts from his Icelandic writings with her own eye-witness response to the country and creates a highly original meditation – part memoir, part prose poem, part criticism, part travelogue.

‘What an original and haunting book.’
James Lasdun
‘This bountiful book rocks away in a stunning mélange between strange and sure, between factual thought and exhaustive experience.’
Blogcritics
