Illuminations: An Anthology of Welsh Short Prose

Synopsis

A fairly new phenomenon in the Welsh literary tradition, the Essay only became a recognized literary form in the Welsh language in the 1920's due to the pioneering work of its first great exponent T.H. Parry Williams. Since then the essay has flourished in Welsh literature and ILLUMINATIONS AN ANTHOLOGY WELSH SHORT PROSE gives the English reader access to this rich literary vein. In addition to the essays themselves, Meic Stephens also provides a brief biographicalo note on each writer and useful explanatory information on incidents or references mentioned in each essay.
