‘For many, Welsh Modernism begins and ends with Dylan Thomas. This stimulating study argues otherwise, demonstrating that Modernist experimentation was a natural outcome of the growing biculturalism and cultural hybridity of early twentieth-century Wales. Laura Wainwright’s is a bold, original contribution not only to our understanding of Wales’s Anglophone literature, but also to the ongoing scholarly enterprise of pluralising our conception of the Modernist Moment world-wide.’
- Professor M. Wynn Thomas, Swansea University

‘This exciting and original study shows how the cultural and linguistic disruptions of Modernism found expression not just in Paris and London, but also in rural Carmarthenshire and the valleys of south Wales – in the explosive, transformational language of Glyn Jones and Lynette Roberts, in the Daliesque Surrealism of Dylan Thomas, and the Expressionist grotesques of Gwyn Thomas. This pioneering study does indeed take us into new and unexplored territories.’
- Emeritus Professor Tony Brown, Bangor University

‘New Territories in Modernism is a timely, illuminating, often brilliant critical study. Its great strength is that it simultaneously identifies the defining features of Welsh modernism, through meticulous close readings of a diverse body of texts, and situates this national cultural phenomenon persuasively within its wider European contexts.’
- Dr Neal Alexander, Aberystwyth University
