by Gwyn JonesThe story-teller has always been an important figure in Welsh society, and this collection draws on a rich and varied literature to present twenty-five of the finest Welsh short stories from this century, many of them original translations. From the exuberant lyricism of Dylan Thomas, to the sparse and telling prose of Kate Roberts, all these tales testify to the vitality and uniqueness of the Welsh story-telling tradition. Through stories of soldiers, poets, scholars, doctors, ordinary men and women, the warm hues and rich textures of all aspects of Welsh life, thought, and tradition are brought forth.
