Each poet’s biography situates the writer in a social and literary context, and ultimately the collection presents an unparalleled panorama of the development of Welsh poetry in English in the 20th century. Featured authors include, Glenda Beagan, Brenda Chamberlain, W. H. Davies, Peter Finch, Catherine Fisher, Kathryn Gray, A. G. Prys-Jones, Oliver Reynolds, Owen Sheers, Dylan Thomas, Gwyn Williams, and many others.
