A Generation of Emerging Poets

A Generation of Emerging Poets
Rockclimbing in silk111

Welsh writing, far from being contained within the borders of its country of origin, is now part of the cosmopolitan world which, over a number of generations, has been evolving in traditionally English-speaking parts of Britain. Of the four comparatively young writers - all female - whom Transcript presents here, certain spend much time in the greater London area. Furthermore, the fact that one of them, Mererid Puw Davies, spent part of her Welsh childhood in the English county of Lancashire serves to illustrate that identity today is as much a state of conciousness as something predominantly territorial or inherited. Visit also Elin ap Hywel, Kathryn Gray, and Samantha Wynne-Rhydderch here in the Welsh issue of Transcript.
