Comparative Stylistics of Welsh and English

Arddulleg y Gymraeg

Kevin J. Rottet and Steve Morris

‘This volume is a treasure, certain to be a resource of abiding value for an extraordinarily diverse audience – from translators seeking concrete guidance in polishing their craft and advanced students striving to bridge the chasm between grammatical mastery and true fluency, to scholars of comparative literature and contrastive linguistics.’
- Emeritus Professor Wayne Harbert, Cornell University

Christopher Meredith

Diana Wallace

‘Christopher Meredith is one of Wales’s most gifted writers, and Diana Wallace’s study is an exceptionally erudite and deft analysis of his work. Situating Meredith in relation to writers such as James Joyce, Raymond Williams, George Orwell and others, Wallace pursues Meredith’s literary preoccupations across novels and poetry, essays and short stories. This book is a compelling study of an author fascinated by language and translations, history and time, work and gender, place and identity.’
- Professor Kirsti Bohata, Director of CREW, Swansea University

‘This continues to be an indispensable source of information for the political and social history of medieval Wales. The documentary evidence presented here casts fascinating light on the careers and connections of the ruling classes and on the interactions between English overlords and the Welsh gentry who administered local government on their behalf.’

Crime, Courts and Community in Mid-Victorian Wales

Montgomeryshire, People and Places

Rachael Jones

‘The economic, social, religious and linguistic tensions of nineteenth- century Montgomeryshire provide the fascinating context for this investigation of how justice was administered at local level when the legal system itself was being reformed. This book admirably complements existing studies of crime and criminality in Wales, contributing significantly to our knowledge of the kinds of people involved.’
- Professor Thomas Glyn Watkin, Wales Legislative Counsel 2007–10

South African Gothic

Anxiety and Creative Dissent in the Post-apartheid Imagination and Beyond

Rebecca Duncan

‘This is a new book, an original book. It traces the history of literary representations of violence and fear in South Africa, and it interrogates the ways in which these might be fruitfully considered as falling within the remit of ‘Gothic’. The reader will find here a vast range of texts; a continuing political commentary handled with subtlety and discrimination; and a sure hand when thinking through the postcolonial implications on Gothic tropes’.
- Professor David Punter, University of Bristol

- Professor David Bebbington, University of Stirling
