Title: Letters from Wales
Description: UK, Seren. 2000. (ISBN: 1854112708). Hardback with Dust Jacket, a5 yellow garage. Hardback with dust jacket in good condition. 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. Good.
