The Urgency of Identity

Contemporary English-Language Poetry from Wales
David Lloyd

This anthology of poems presents, for the first time in the U.S., the most important English-language Welsh poets of the 1980s and 1990s, and works illuminating the complexity, constant flux, and political implications of the poet's sense of inherited culture. A collection of fascinating interviews with the poets rounds out the exploration of the Welsh-English cultural divide.
