About The Book

The twin cultures of Welsh and English in Wales have caused a great deal of discussion and comment. Wynn Thomas explores the relationship between the two cultures in Wales from the 17th century to the present day. He focuses primarily on the linguistic aspects, using examples from Welsh and Anglo-Welsh Literature.


"It would be hard to conceive of anyone else as impeccably qualified as M. Wynn Thomas to interpret that babel of voices. His reading is as judicious as it is encylclopaedic, and his judgement is secure. A Giant step forward in the right direction." Times Literary Supplement
