It comes as no surprise to the average Welsh person that their culture continues to thrive despite centuries of seeming servitude to the English. Wales, exemplified by the symbol of the Welsh dragon, is a small proud nation of many talents, large imaginations and even bigger hearts.Saint David's Day, or the Feast of Saint David falls on the 1st March each year on the anniversary of his death in 589 AD. The feast has been regularly celebrated since his canonisation in the 12th century.Traditional festivities include wearing the symbols of Wales and St David; daffodils and leeks, eating the National dish of cawl, a thick heartwarming soup, as well as the classic Welsh rarebit, and parades throughout the day featuring the traditional dress.The pride in its culture and history is keenly felt and in this volume the poets of Wales through the ages bring verse that fortifies and uplifts the soul of a nation and its much admired literary merits.Show more
Wales - The Poetry Of - An Introduction. This proud nation with it's long history; sometimes rough, hewn from bleak landscapes, sometimes gently soft from its comforting voices has produced a long succession of artists and poets. In the latter category Louis MacNeice most probably stands pre-eminent, his words and phrasing are on a plane few can equal and most are in awe of. But in this volume we do put forward others who have their own words and voice to add to this rich tapestry. Wilfred Owen, Henry Vaughan, George Herbert and Edward Thomas amongst them.Show more
