Editorial Reviews

New Welsh Review

“The significance of Wynn Thomas's Internal Difference lies in the fact that it is the first critical study of primarily English-language Welsh texts to rely centrally on the values of Welsh-language culture . . . He has thus changed the way we look at these subjects, at once shifting the centre of Welsh/English studies from the south to the north, from the stasis of the aesthetic movement to a consideration of literature in its social context. Nothing is more revealing in this connection than his habit of dwelling only briefly on any one poem or novel, for all his careful reading of them, before moving on to a consideration of what these mean to Wales as a whole.” –New Welsh Review
Planet

“Yet once again he seems to have read every text and heard every argument, so that his account of these writers is informed, balanced and sparkling in its insights.” –Planet
Book News Wales

“Wynn Thomas has assembled an impressive body of critical work on the literature of Wales. He is one of very few critics active in Wales today equipped to take a multi-talent view of the current state of Welsh culture . . .” –Book News Wales
Year's Work in English Studies
This is the first book I know to offer a reasoned view of why Anglo-Welsh literature is distinct, how it reflects a situation different from and possibly more complex than that of England, and how it is diverging more and more from the Welsh-language culture with which it once ran in harness.” –Tony Conran, Year's Work in English Studies

Booknews
Thomas (English, U. College, Swansea, Wales) focuses on Welsh literature written in English during the 20th century, to illustrate the divergent, and often clashing, views of modern Wales and Welsh identity. His comparisons put some strange fellows in the same bed: Alun Lewis and Alun Llywelyn-Williams, Emyr Humpreys and Emlyn Williams, and Kingsley Amis and Angharad Tomos. The role of English literature and English speakers in a resurgent Wales is currently a hot debate. The title page shows the subtitle as Twentieth-Century Writing in Wales. Annotation c.
