This anthology presents a selection of poems written by Welsh writers living in Wales and London in response to the French Revolution. Edited and translated from Welsh into English for the first time, these poems artfully capture this period of unprecedented change and upheaval, challenging what it meant to be Welsh, British, and patriotic amid shifting views on religious affiliation. Accompanying the English poems are the Welsh originals as well as explanatory notes and an introductory essay that provide context.

Murray Pittock, University of Glasgow
“This book is a unique resource, which places Welsh writing in the Revolutionary era in the context of Welsh nationality, traditional forms, and the distinctive shape that Crown loyalism took in Wales. Modern, acute, and distinctive, it is key reading for any scholar wishing to study this topic.”
