About The Book

Emyr Humphreys, poet, novelist, short-story writer and dramatist, is one of the foremost literary figures in Wales. For over 40 years he has interpreted the world of Welsh-speaking Wales, sympathetically but without sentiment.


"One feature of Humphreys's work has remained constant over the sixty years of his career, namely, the fact that his poetry is very unlike any other poetry that has been written in Wales: and in this difference lies its significance-its power to make a difference to the way in which we think of ourselves and our world." New Welsh Review
