Welsh Poetry of the French Revolution 1789-1805

Allbwn ymchwil: Llyfr/AdroddiadLlyfr


The volume represents original archival research and textual scholarship. It comprises a critical introduction to the edited texts (25,000 words); a scholarly edition of 59 strict- and free-metre poems from manuscript and eighteenth-century print sources (26,500 words); literal English translations of the texts presented parallel to the Welsh originals (31,900 words); bibliographical notes on the authors and notes on the texts (22,000 words). The texts provide a unique and valuable resource for Welsh speakers, and the translations ensure that hitherto inaccessible texts are available to those without a knowledge of the Welsh language. The critical introduction provides a new narrative of the distinctive shape that Crown loyalism took in Wales, and the specifically bardic frame that Welsh poets chose for their responses (whether politically radical or reactionary; whether for popular or elite consumption) to the French Revolution and the revolutionary controversy in Wales.
