Welsh Writing in English: v.8
Sorry, this product is not currently available to order


Welsh Writing in English: A Yearbook of Critical Essays is the first academic journal devoted solely to the study of the English-language writing of Wales. It is the principal forum for critical discussion of the whole chronological range of Welsh writing in English. This issue's featured writer is Dylan Thomas, whose politics are discussed in essays by Victor Golightly and Victor Paananen. James A. Davies looks at how Thomas's marriage is represented in his poetry of the 1940s, while the work of Thomas's contemporary, Vernon Watkins, is re-evaluated by the Archbishop of Canterbury, Dr Rowan Williams. Further essays look at T. J. Llewelyn Prichard's Twm Shon Catti, and R. S. Thomas's reading of William Carlos Williams and Lewis Jones. In addition, Jeremy Hooker writes on poetry and place, and the work of Alun Lewis is debated by John Pikoulis, Tony Brown and M. Wynn Thomas. This issue of Welsh Writing in English will be essential reading for anyone interested in the latest critical perspectives on the English-language literature of Wales.
