Cathryn A. Charnell-White, Welsh Poetry of the French Revolution 1789-1805 (Cardiff, 2012)
This anthology present a selection of Welsh-language poems written in response to the French revolution, the Revolutionary Wars, and the controversies they raised in Britain. Here edited and translated for the firt time, these poems reveal how writers based in Wales and London engaged with the reovutionary debate and explored notions of Welshness and Britishness in eisteddfodic odes, daring satires, and praise-poems to both regional and national heroes.
'This book is a unique resource, which places Welsh writing in the Revolutionary era in the context of Welsh nationality, traditional forms and the distinctive shape that Crown loyalism took in Wales. Modern, acute and distinctive, it is key reading for any scholar wishing to study this topic.'
Professor Murray Pittock, University of Glasgow
