Creating a vibrant expression of the industrial, pastoral, rural, urban, religious, political and linguistic experience of Wales in the 20th-century world, these poems are as varied as Wales itself and range from the well-known to the startling, the lyrical to the experimental, the celebration of tradition to that of protest. Each poet’s biography situates the writer in a social and literary context, and ultimately the collection presents an unparalleled panorama of the development of Welsh poetry in English in the 20th century. Featured authors include, Glenda Beagan, Brenda Chamberlain, W. H. Davies, Peter Finch, Catherine Fisher, Kathryn Gray, A. G. Prys-Jones, Oliver Reynolds, Owen Sheers, Dylan Thomas, Gwyn Williams, and many others.
