Book Talk - ‘Arthur Machen and the Art of Wandering’ with Merlin Coverley

Merlin will be considering Machen's unique contribution to the literary history of walking, especially exploring London's outer limits.

Continuing our celebration of writer and mystic Arthur Machen’s 150th birthday Housmans are delighted to welcome back Merlin Coverley, author of ‘Psychogeography’ and the recently published ‘The Art of Wandering’.

Merlin will be considering Machen's unique contribution to the literary history of walking, with a particular focus on those years he spent exploring London's outer limits, a period he describes in his final volume of autobiography, 'The London Adventure: or, The Art of Wandering' (1924). Merlin will be demonstrating Machen's position within a broader tradition of London Visionaries, a role he shares with, amongst others, Blake, De Quincey and Dickens.
