As the title implies, this wonderful book explains the origins, history and intricacies of the various forms of Welsh poetry. There is a chapter on Welsh poets of the First World War, as well as the Aftermath. To my mind, Welsh poetry is a very important part of the poetic cultural heritage of the British Isles.
This book is fantastic – it is a must read for all poetry lovers.
For an example of the poetry form Cywydd please see the post about Dafydd Ellis of 2 June 2021 http://forgottenpoetsofww1.blogspot.com/2021/06/dafydd-david-dai-ellis-1893-1918-welsh.html
