Medieval Welsh Poems by Joseph P. Clancy

Medieval Welsh Poems by Joseph P. Clancy soon to be available at the wonderful BookLovers of Bath web site!

Published: Dublin: Four Courts Press, 2003, Hardback in dust wrapper.

Illustrated by way of: Glossary;

From the cover: This anthology of Welsh poems from c. 575 to c. 1525 offers the general reader the most substantial collection of medieval Welsh verse yet rendered into English, in translations that will support the claim that this poetry is one of the finest literary achievements of the Middle Ages.

Drawing on Professor Clancys acclaimed Medieval Welsh Lyrics (1965) and The Earliest Welsh Poetry (1970) this comprehensive anthology presents over 150 poems, eloquently translated, that render poetry as poetry. A lucid introduction, ample notes and a glossary provide the background needed for a full appreciation of the poems.

Very Good in Near Fine Dustwrapper. Faint spotting to the top edge of the text block, again to the front pastedown. Text complete, clean and tight. A genuinely nice copy.

Black boards with Gilt titling to the Spine. 396 pages. 9½” x 6¼”.

Of course, if you don’t like this one, may I charm you with my array of books hither or maybe further, hand picked, books in my Poetry catalogue?
