Pressestimmen"The contributors to this volume do an excellent job of addressing the far-ranging effects of these developments on Welsh poetry and prose, while also highlighting the uniqueness of individual poets and writers . . . Given that this volume contains eleven chapters by eleven different contributions, it is remarkably coherent. While the thorough index makes this a very useful reference book, it can also be read straight through as a fluid narrative of literary history . . . Each chapter constitutes a solid introduction to its specific field . . ." -New Welsh Review
