The collected poems of Glyn Jones by Glyn Jones( Book )

3 editions published in 1996 in English and held by 136 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

One of the most important writers of twentieth-century Wales, and a master of the short-story form, Glyn Jones regarded himself as primarily a poet. This volume gathers all Glyn Jones's previously published poems, together with a number which are published here for the first time. They include the complete text of 'Seven Keys to Shaderdom', a long, complex poem on which he worked during his last years, and in which he found some remarkable, sometimes disturbing things to say about the lot of the artist (whether writer or painter) in Wales today. The editor, Meic Stephens, has provided notes on the provenance of the poems and thrown light on many of the allusions and uncommon words of which the poet was so fond. His chronology of the writer's life and work, and a valuable introduction by Mercer Simpson, are designed to help the student, teacher and general reader to a fuller appreciation of these fine poems

Rhys Davies : a writer's life by Meic Stephens( Book )

4 editions published between 2013 and 2014 in English and held by 78 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The first full biography of this important Welsh prose writer, in both the short story and novel form. Drawing on hitherto unavailable sources, including many conversations with the author's brother, it provides a perspective in which his very real achievements can be more easily appreciated. Rhys Davies (1901-78) was among the most dedicated, prolific and accomplished of Welsh prose writers. This is his first full biography, describing the early years of the Blaenclydach grocer s son, his abhorrence of chapel culture , his bohemian years in Fitzrovia, his visit to the Lawrences in the south of France, his unremitting work ethic, his patrons, his admiration for the French and Russian writers who were his models, his love-hate relationship with the Rhondda, and above all, the dissembling that went into Print of a Hare s Foot (1969), an autobiographical beginning , which proves to be a most unreliable book from start to finish

Each poet's biography situates the writer in a social and literary context, and the collection presents an unparalleled panorama of the development of Welsh poetry in English in the twentieth century
