The Oxford Book of Welsh Verse is an anthology of poems written in the Welsh language between the sixth century AD and the present day. The long historyof this poetry gives it a striking diversity, ranging from the songs in praise of the chieftains of North Britain through eullogies to the independent princes of medieval Wales and the social poetry of the late Middle Ages to the moderbn idiom of our own time. Through it all there runs an element of tradition, which emphasizes the lyrical note and the perfection of form, and which imparts a degree of cohesion to the diverse elements. There is an Introduction in English.
