Gwreans an Bys: The Creation of the World, a Cornish Mystery, 1864
The text of the 'Creation, ' the Cornish drama now printed, was, like the poem of the 'Passion, ' which forms part of the last volume, thrust forth on the world by Mr. Davies Gilbert. In the case of the 'Creation, ' Mr. Gilbert interpaged the Cornish text with an English version by John Keigwin. So erroneous is Mr. Gilbert's book, in text as well as in translation, that no argument seems needed to justify the Philological Society in printing a corrected edition of the only important relic of Cornish literature which has been unattainable in a trustworthy form.
