Overview

Harri Webb has described himself as a 'poet with only one theme, one preoccupation', whose work is 'unrepentantly nationalistic'. Few have written about Wales more intensively, steadily and passionately, or with a greater variety of approach, of genre, of style, than Harri Webb. As poet, prolific journalist, public speaker, Welsh Republican, essayist, scriptwriter and pamphleteer, he has focused his articulate attention on the glories, the particularities and the plight of his nation.

Brian Morris's account of his life, journalism and poetry is the first book-length study of Webb -- one of the most controversial writers Wales has produced in the twentieth century.
