QUESTING LIVES: Joseph Farrell at the Edinburgh Festival

Travel broadens the mind. Joseph Farrell, a noted translator from Italian, assesses the final years of Robert Louis Stevenson who settled in Samoa in 1890 and whose expert knowledge of the Pacific islanders turned him into a fierce critic of foreign interference. Joseph will be joined by poet Lavinia Greenlaw, following William Morris's travels in Iceland and probing the conflicted reasons for people wanting to leave home. Chaired by James Runcie.
