‘Siriol McAvoy has assembled essays of impressive range and depth, admirably locating Lynette Roberts’s remarkable body of writing within the contexts of Welsh writing in English, war poetry, international modernism and women’s literature. This collection should be widely read and discussed, for it underlines the continuing and compelling relevance of this Argentine-born and Welsh-identifying poet to our understanding of the intersections between the particular and universal, national and transnational impulses within modernist literature.’
- Professor Daniel G. Williams, Swansea University
