Twentieth-Century Autobiography: Writing Wales in English
Besorgung - Lieferbarkeit unbestimmt
BeschreibungThe writing of good autobiography requires an encounter with oneself that can involve the need to wrestle with potent elements from one's past. This work on 20th-century Welsh autobiography in English traces the psychological influences which have shaped the consciousness and world views of seven authors, all by birth, or by adoption, Welsh.

Pressestimmen' The appeal of this splendid volume should extend beyond narrowly defined academic circles. These essays will compliment and enhance any future reading of the texts concerned.' Gwales 'Prys-Williams's enthusiasm for her project is refreshing, as is her often charming prose style ...well worth reading as a handy introductory guide to Welsh autobiography: detailed enough for readers familiar with the literature of Wales, and yet brief enough for those to whom Barbara Prys-Williams has opened up a whole new world of writers'. Biography '...fascinating and thoroughly researched book ...'. New Welsh Review
