Description

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.

Author Biography

Lavinia Greenlaw's interest in perception, optical technologies and landscape led to her being the first artist in residence at London's Science Museum. She has published five collections of poetry as well as fiction and non-fiction including The Importance of Music to Girls. Her immersive sound-work, Audio Obscura, a study of interrupted perception, won the 2011 Ted Hughes Award. In 2016, she wrote and directed a short film, The Sea is an Edge and an Ending, about her father's dementia.
