A comprehensive collection that includes over seventy Welsh-language and English-language writers, Twentieth-Century Women’s Writing in Wales traces the history of Welsh women’s writing over the past century. Covering forms as diverse as the novel, drama, travel writing, creative journalism, and contemporary poetry, this volume provides an important complement and corrective to current works of Welsh literary history that focus primarily on male authors, examining how Wales is conceived in literary works as a place in which both Welshness and womanhood can be lived and performed.
