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
