This book offers a close examination of the work of Welsh writers of the eighteenth century who chose to write and publish in English rather than primarily in Welsh. Drawing on both familiar elements of the canon and lesser-known works, Bethan M. Jenkins shows how the works grappled with issues related to the creation of the new state of Great Britain, and how these authors saw themselves as Welsh citizens within a newly multinational, multiethnic, and multilingual state. It further extends and complicates ongoing discussions of the concept and development of a view of Britishness espoused by Welsh thinkers at the time.
