'A wonderful compendium of good poems and poets worth meeting ... But it is also an act of empowerment that reaches beyond individuals and single artistic genres, in a way that only poetry can.' Alan Riach, New Welsh Review 'Meic Stephens, with his huge knowledge of Welsh writers, has done this editing fairly, sensitively and comprehensively.' John Idris Jones,Roundyhouse Poetry MagazineVom Verlag:
The most legendary names in poetry from Wales - David Jones, Idris Davies, Vernon Watkins, RS Thomas, Dylan Thomas and Alun Lewis - are featured here alongside many living greats such as Dannie Abse, Tony Conran, Gillian Carke, Tony Curtis, Robert Minhinnick and Gwyneth Lewis. Every decade of the century is featured, as is almost every part of Wales - urban, industrial and rural - and many of the poems reflect our history from Edwardian times to the post-industrial present. Biographical notes are provided for all the poets. A few lesser names have been selected to suggest continuity and the changing literary scene over the century. Wales now has a rich, vibrant and varied literature in English and this anthology reflects it comprehensive, authoritative and lively way.
