University of Wales Press, 2007 - Poetry - 203 pages
Welsh Court Poems is the first of ten volumes in the new Library of Medieval Welsh Literature series, which aims to make Middle Welsh literature available to English-speaking scholars and students who wish to study it in its original language. In keeping with that aim, Welsh Court Poems makes the poetry of the twelfth and thirteenth centuries available for the first time to this readership—presenting thirty-three of the 236 poems published by the Centre for Advanced Welsh and Celtic Studies. Each poem appears in the original Middle Welsh accompanied by a full scholarly apparatus in English, providing a point of entry for any scholar interested in Middle Welsh poetry itself or researching comparative literature in other languages, other periods of Welsh literature, and medieval history.
