Twentieth Century Anglo-Welsh Poetry

Overview

"Wales was the source of some of the finest poetry of the last century, from the modernism of David Jones through the powerful lyrics of Dylan Thomas and the understatement of R.S. Thomas to a host of talented younger poets. In this, the definitive anthology of 'Anglo-Welsh' poetry, Dannie Abse, himself an important poet, has chosen the outstanding poets and poems of the period, displaying a breadth and variety which belies the notion of 'regional poetry'."

Overview

"Wales was the source of some of the finest poetry of the last century, from the modernism of David Jones through the powerful lyrics of Dylan Thomas and the understatement of R.S. Thomas to a host of talented younger poets. In this, the definitive anthology of 'Anglo-Welsh' poetry, Dannie Abse, himself an important poet, has chosen the outstanding poets and poems of the period, displaying a breadth and variety which belies the notion of 'regional poetry'." "The selection begins with Georgian Poets W.H. Davies and Edward Thomas, and the war poet Wilfred Owen. It includes the collier-poet Idris Davies, the lyrics of Vernon Watkins and writers such as Tony Conran, T.H. Jones and Nigel Jenkins for whom Welsh language poetry is a major influence. Polemicists Harri Webb and John Tripp stand beside the elegance of John Ormond and Leslie Norris, while history and world events loom in the work of Tony Curtis and Duncan Bush. Robert Minhinnick, Paul Henry, Stephen Knight and Owen Sheers add to the list of talented poets. And, as the century progressed, women poets increased in number: Jean Earle, Gillian Clarke, Christine Evans, Gwyneth Lewis, Hilary Llewellyn-Williams and Deryn Rees-Jones among them." English-language poetry in Wales is largely a twentieth century phenomenon: as this anthology demonstrates, its contribution to poetry in Britain is influential beyond its brief history. First published in 1997, this new edition brings the century completely up to date with the inclusion of work by outstanding new poets Owen Sheers, Sarah Corbett, Kate Bingham, Frances Williams and Samantha Wynne-Rhydderch.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"Abse's Wales speaks to the world, and he recruits the strongest voices for the purpose. There has been in the century a true renaissance of Welsh writing." —Michael Foot, The Observer

"An assembly of exceptionally good poetry." —Jan Morris, The Guardian

"Abse's incontrovertible selection of Wales' super-poets unveils at least a dozen grossly under-rated reputations." —David Hughes, The Mail on Sunday
