A nation with two languages but one soul that speaks passionately through its writers -- here is the guide to the modern literary scene covering circa 100 works that sum up the currents and corners of Welsh life from the 1920s to the present. This little book puts the lot at your fingertips, covering novels, short-story collections, poetry and drama written in or translated into English. In addition there is a a database of translated work, while each review is followed by an extract to give a flavour of the book. The Babel Guides are an expanding series of pocket reference works to whats available in English from the literatures of the world for a non-specialist audience. Essential for public and academic libraries, students and general readers who want to expand their literary horizons.
This is the first comprehensive bibliography of Welsh-English literary translation, complementing the online BWLET.net database (live since October 2002) as part of the AHRB-funded project. The earliest translations date from the 17th century and sources for translations vary from anthologies, manuscripts, journals, to audiovisual and internet translations. The information is presented by literary period, with each author appearing alphabetically. Each chapter begins with a short introduction to the literature of the age and to the translations produced, marked with the translator's own literary, cultural, political, gendered and historical concerns. BWLET offers an insight into the energy of Welsh language culture. It maps the cultural exchanges that have shaped it over the centuries and invites new readings of recent cultural relations between the Welsh-speaking Welsh and the majority English language population as well as the Anglophone reading public worldwide.
