About The Book

Bardism, Iolo Morganwg's idiosyncratic bardo-druidic vision, was a radicalized version of Wales' professional poetic tradition. This volume's discussion of the layers of national, regional and personal identity in Bardism also brings into focus bardic nationalism and the tensions involved in the expression of national and regional loyalties.
