"This selection of translations covers 14 centuries of Welsh poetry, from the epics of Taliesin and Aneirin to contemporary poets like Gwyn Thomas and Nesta Wyn Jones. The range of works includes sagas and carols, hymns and strict metres, and Romantics and social realism. Among the poets included are Cynddelw, Owain Gwynedd, Dafydd ap Gwilym, Ann Griffiths, Pantycelyn, T. Gwyn Jones, Williams Parry and his cousin Parry-Williams, Saunders Lewis, Gwenallt, and Waldo Williams. A substantial appendix of englynion—stanzas to be accompanied by the harp—is provided. Also included are a guide to the intricacies of Welsh meter, the complex rules that make Welsh poetry unique, a glossary, and an appendix on pronunciation. Formerly published as The Penguin Book of Welsh Verse, this edition is completely revised and considerably expanded."
