Wales and the Romantic Imagination is the first study devoted exclusively to the appropriation of Wales—its landscape, history, and culture—by writers of the Romantic period. Interest in Celtic influence on these writers is on the rise, and the essays collected here represent a key contribution to ongoing debates over the Romantics' relations to issues of national identity, antiquarianism, politics, print culture, and gender. The Romantics remain popular with both readers and scholars, and these essays give us much-needed insight into one of their most important sources of inspiration.

Written as an act of protest in a Welsh-speaking community in north-west Wales, Why Wales Never Was combines a devastating analysis of the historical failure of Welsh nationalism with an apocalyptic vision of a non-Welsh future. It is the ‘progressive’ nature of Welsh politics and the ‘empire of the civic’, which rejects both language and culture, that prevents the colonised from rising up against his colonial master. Wales will always be a subjugated nation until modes of thought, dominant since the nineteenth century, are overturned. Originally a comment on Welsh acquiescence to Britishness at the time of the 2014 Scottish independence referendum, the book’s emphasis on the importance of European culture is a parable for Brexit times. Both deeply rooted in Welsh culture and European in scope, Why Wales Never Was brings together history, philosophy and politics in a way never tried before in Wales. First published in Welsh in 2015, Why Wales Never Was affirms the author’s reputation as one of the most radical writers in Wales today.

Between Wales and England is an exploration of eighteenth-century anglophone Welsh writing by authors for whom English-language literature was mostly a secondary concern. In its process, the work interrogates these authors’ views on the newly-emerging sense of ‘Britishness’, finding them in many cases to be more nuanced and less resistant than has generally been considered. It looks primarily at the English-language works of Lewis Morris, Evan Evans, and Edward Williams (Iolo Morganwg) in the context of both their Welsh- and English-language influences and time spent travelling between the two countries, considering how these authors responded to and reimagined the new national identity through their poetry and prose.

Wales, though a small country, has a literature among the oldest in Europe. The New Companion is an essential reference guide to its literature, whether in Welsh or in English, and to Wale's history and culture. It spans the period from the sixth century to the present, from early heroic poetry and the medieval Arthurian tales to the flowering of Welsh national consciousness in the late twentieth century. The individual entries contain a wealth of information about writers and their work, and taken as a whole present a panorama of Welsh society over the centuries. Among the subjects treated are books and periodicals, the principal genres, the complexities of Welsh prosody, myth, legend, and folklore, names of places and people with literary associations, and events, movements and institutions which have a literary dimension. There is also a chronology of the history of Wales, and an appendix listing the winners of the main literary prizes at the National Eisteddfod since 1861, together with the festival's annual location.

Focusing on the reception of Palestrina, this bold interdisciplinary study explains how and why the works of a sixteenth-century composer came to be viewed as a paradigm for modern church music. It explores the diverse ways in which later composers responded to his works and style, and expounds a provocative model for interpreting compositional historicism. In addition to presenting insights into the works of Bruckner, Mendelssohn and Liszt, the book offers fresh perspectives on the institutional, aesthetic and ideological frameworks sustaining the cultivation of choral music in this period. This publication provides an overview and analysis of the relation between the Palestrina revival and nineteenth-century composition and it demonstrates that the Palestrina revival was just as significant for nineteenth-century culture as parallel movements in the other arts, such as the Gothic revival.

Custodial Aesthetics in Contemporary Welsh Art

"Certain Welsh Artists explores custodial aesthetics, in which artists of all forms consciously or subconsciously become guardians of their culture, particularly of cultures under pressure from more dominant ones, be they close neighbours or transmitted through electronic media. Wales has been referred to as a “colonial culture”; along with Celtic neighbours Ireland and Scotland, it is extremely aware of external pressures on its identity, and the need to respond in a “Welsh” (rather than non-English) way. As devolution changes the face of the United Kingdom, the need for an organic, evolving national identity becomes even more pressing. Certain Welsh Artists surveys the work of visual artists in this context. Its subjects include conceptual artists using a variety of materials and forms to express the significant difference of their backgrounds. Others address existing artistic subjects, symbols and cliches from a new perspective. Combining personal statements from artists with critically acute essays on the links between art and identity, this book documents a new, culturally-confident Wales. Artists reviewed include Bethan Huws, Tim Davies, Ivor Davies, Lois Williams, Catrin Williams, John Meirion Morris, Glyn Jones, Peter Finnemore, and the Beca Group."

Despite his literary successes—publishing six volumes of poetry, a play, and a children's book—Robert Bloomfield never escaped from poverty or anxiety and died early and in distress. This penniless history supports the description of Bloomfield as the most successful of the self-taught "peasant poets" of the Romantic period and underscores the incredible odds that any of his writings should be discovered at all. This selection of Bloomfield's poems was originally published in 1998 and was the first scholarly edition of his work. Bloomfield believed that his patron, Capel Lofft, had altered the text excessively, and so this edition has completely restored Bloomfield's own, much fresher text from the autobiographical manuscript at Harvard University. Revised and enlarged, this version also includes a selection of Bloomfield's prose prefaces and explanatory notes, a chronology of his life, and a list of further reading.

This fascinating anthology of letters spans over eight centuries of life in Wales and provides an enthralling commentary on its historical development from the medieval times to the 20th century. The letters bring Welsh history to life through vivid vignettes of personal experience and all too human opinion. While seemingly devoted to events in Wales, the correspondents are also measuring Wales's place in Britain, Europe, and the world.These letters are from kings, princes, and bishops to writers, artists, and politicians; from the medieval machinations of Glyndwr and Hotspur, to industrial disputes; from Oliver Cromwell to Lloyd George; George Fliot to Dylan Thomas; Edward I to Evelyn Waugh. Here too, are letters from Nathaniel Hawthorne and John Cooper Powys about emigration to America for religious reasons or because of the 19th century industrial revolution. These letters provide a richly textured, informative, and entertaining book about this fascinating country, its history and its people.
