A forgotten Welsh novel, first published in 1925, this love story is also a portrait of class conflict and the plight of rural women. The plot turns on young Rhys Lloyd's interest in the ideas of Social Darwinism and the League of Nations, which make him a dangerous figure in his village. To complicate his life further, Rhys is the son of a Welsh-speaking Nonconformist—but he is falling in love with the church-going Esther. The couple suffers from the disapproval of their neighbors, until—over time—the stoic and determined Esther calmly transcends the casual brutality of her agricultural upbringing, improves the lot of the other villagers, and finds new strength and organic spirituality.

About the Author:

Hilda Vaughan was privately educated, but her experiences with the Women’s Land Army during WWI opened her eyes to to rural poverty. As an author, she was known for her acute ear for the speech of the Welsh people of Radnorshire—and for her insight into women's daily lives.

Review:

"A remarkable first novel." The New Statesman "Wales depicted truly at last." The Western Mail

Book Description Parthian Books, United Kingdom, 2011. Paperback. Condition: New. Language: English . Brand New Book. In the first and, arguably, the finest of Hilda Vaughan s ten novels the dawn of the twentieth century brings a new generation that clashes with the conservative traditionalism of an old Welsh way of life. Rhys Lloyd and his engagement with the ideas of Social Darwinism and the League of Nations make him a dangerous figure in the village. The son of a Welsh-speaking Nonconformist, his love for the church-going Esther reflects tensions that have long and bitterly divided the community. Most striking, however, is the stoic and determined Esther who calmly suffers the casual brutality of her agricultural upbringing, drawing on an inner strength and organic spirituality that would provide an archetype for Vaughan s later heroines. Despite a loving and sensitive depiction of her native Radnorshire landscape, Vaughan offers no rural idyll. The Battle to the Weak is a vividly drawn, socially engaged portrait of a small rural Welsh community with an awareness of its context within the wider world. Seller Inventory # WBC9781906998257
