Presenting Saunders Lewis


It is indeed tragic that so little of Saunders Lewis' work is currently in print.

Lewis was a gifted playwright, poet, Catholic apologist and Welsh Nationalist who wrote in Welsh. This selection captures this multi-faceted writer brilliantly.

The book really conveys a sense of the full vision and scope of Lewis' artistry and social conscience. The poetry is brilliant and deeply evocative. The theatre pieces are poetry in themselves.

Unfortunately, this makes it all the more lamentable that Lewis' genius is not more readily available to a wider audience. Lewis' influences range from Pascal to Beckett to Medieval Welsh Poetry. This is a truly fantastic and rewarding book.
