A Guide to Welsh Literature 1990-1996 v. 6
Sorry, this product is not currently available to order


The latest in this established and well respected series provides us with a detailed critical introduction to the literature of the Welsh language in the twentieth century. It is arguably the most important in the series. All the contributors, who are specialists in their own field, write with critical authority on both the strengths and weaknesses of modern Welsh literature. Aimed at the general reader and presupposing no knowledge of the Welsh language, it sets out the essential social background to the literature and contains copious illustrative passages with translations. It examines the literature of the First World War, the novel, the short story, drama and the rich poetic tradition and its response to social change in Wales. Particular attention is given to contemporary writing, including a survey of the present situation by the eminent author and critic R.M. Jones. Authors included are Robin Llywelyn, Wiliam Owen Roberts and Jane Edwards.
