0 Reviews
This groundbreaking volume is the first bilingual anthology of Welsh women's poetry, demonstrating the rich, varied canon of poetry by Welsh women in both the Welsh and English languages. It ranges from Gwerful Mechain, the Welsh women's Chaucer, to acclaimed contemporary poets such as Menna Elfyn and Gillian Clarke, and many works which previously existed only in handwritten manuscripts in the National Library of Wales. Including brief biographies of each poet, and some daring new translations, the editors have produced a superbly researched anthology that illustrates the breadth, power, and skill of Welsh women's poetry.
