Welsh Verse, translations by Tony Conran, paperback (very good condition)


The tradition of Welsh poetry stretches back to the sixth century, making it one of the oldest living literatures in Europe. In Welsh Verse Tony Conran translates a selection from fourteen centuries of poetry, from the epics of Taliesin and Aneurin to modern poets such as Gwyn Thomas and Nesta Wyn Jones. En route he takes in sagas and carols, hymn and strict metres, Romantics and Social Realists. Here are translations of Cyddelw, Dafydd ap Gwilym, Ann Griffiths, Pantycelyn, T Gwynn Jones, Williams Parry and Parry-Williams, Saunders Lewis, Gwenallt and Waldo Wlliams.
