As a contribution to the 1995 UK Year of Literature, this work presents an anthology of the favourite poems of well-known Welsh people and others with strong connections with Wales. Over 120 contributors have chosen a favourite poem and given the reasons why they like it. The choice of poems is diverse and the accompanying comments varied in style and character, reflecting the range of backgrounds and experiences of the contributors. An English foreword has been written by Jan Morris and a Welsh one by Twm Morys. The anthology contains 24 original illustrations donated by “The Print Makers of Wales” and has been sponsored by the National Westminster Bank. All proceeds from the book will be donated to Shelter Cymru (Registered Charity No 515902) to help homeless people in Wales.
