New Territories in Modernism : Anglophone Welsh Writing, 1930-1949 Paperback


Until very recently, Welsh literary Modernism has been critically neglected, both within and outside Wales.

This is the first book solely devoted to the study of Welsh literary Modernism, revealing and examining the Modernism of eight key Anglophone Welsh writers.

Throughout the book, the author demonstrates how the linguistic experimentation of Anglophone Welsh writers both reflects and constitutes their engagement with the Modernistic conditions generated by unprecedented linguistic, social and cultural change in modern Wales.

The author concludes that Anglophone Welsh writing in the period 1930-49 saw the emergence of a distinct Welsh Modernism that now challenges conventional literary histories and, in more than one sense, takes Modernism and Modernist studies into new territories.
