The psychological influences that have shaped the consciousness and worldviews of seven Welsh authors are traced in this pioneering work on 20th-century Welsh autobiographers. The autobiographies include humorist Gwyn Thomas, whose comic exuberance is shown to have bleak origins; B. L. Coombes and Ron Berry’s depictions of a now bygone valley society; feminist Lorna Sage’s caustic eye on her border upbringing; Margid Evans's view on the different phases of life; Rhys Davis's manipulation of his own history; and R. S. Thomas’s engagement in a searingly honest search for self.

About the Author:

Barbara Prys-Williams is a research fellow at the Centre for Research in the English literature and language of Wales department at the University of Wales–Swansea.

Review:

' The appeal of this splendid volume should extend beyond narrowly defined academic circles. These essays will compliment and enhance any future reading of the texts concerned.' Gwales 'Prys-Williams's enthusiasm for her project is refreshing, as is her often charming prose style ...well worth reading as a handy introductory guide to Welsh autobiography: detailed enough for readers familiar with the literature of Wales, and yet brief enough for those to whom Barbara Prys-Williams has opened up a whole new world of writers'. Biography '...fascinating and thoroughly researched book ...'. New Welsh Review
