Argues that the way in which people came to perceive and to represent themselves as Welsh was profoundly affected by the gender ideologies prevalent during the Romantic and Victorian periods. This title introduces readers to a hundred Welsh women authors at work during the years 1780-1900, some writing in Welsh and some in English.
'This book is the fruit of much research over the years by an academic extremely well qualified in this field - A study of nineteenth-century Welsh women writers is long overdue and Jane Aaron is the ideal scholar to present it.' Professor Caroline Franklin, Department of English, Swansea University
