Book Description

28 April 2011
Lavinia Greenlaw's selection from Morris's Icelandic Journal ('the best book of travel written by an English poet', and the least known) is interposed with her own 'questions of travel', which follow 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.

5.0 out of 5 stars Put it in your suitcase. 28 May 2012
By Micah Christensen - Published on Amazon.com
It started as an impulse purchase the the London Review Bookshop and became a good friend as I travelled in Spain, Portugal, France, and the United States. In Questions of Travel, Lavinia Greenlaw, a wonderful poet in her own right, shares excerpts from William Morris' nineteenth-century journey to Iceland. Morris is principally known for his involvement in the Arts & Crafts Movement. As a traveler, we see how funny, insightful and profound he can be in his private life. His comments are universally applicable to anyone going away from or back home.

The Book Depository did a great job. This book arrived in tip-top condition. A lovely presentation of many of Morris's experiences in Iceland.
