Medieval Welsh Poems


An anthology of 150 Welsh poems, covering the 6th to 16th century, which are all translated into English. The poems, which include courtly lyrics, battle cries and laments for dead princes, evoke a medieval Welsh society in which courage, loyalty and honour were all important. The introduction discusses the characteristics of Welsh poetry that distinguishes it so clearly from Anglo-Saxon and Middle English verse. The book concludes with biographies of the known poets. 396p (Four Courts 2003)
