Literature and Literary Criticism: General Criticism and Critical Theory
"Emyr Humphreys’s achievement is, as M. Wynn Thomas argues, Faulknerian in its epic scale, chronicling the great cultural shifts that Wales has undergone over the last century – from the complex pressures of nineteenth-century Nonconformity to Wales’s struggle for identity in our contemporary globalised world. While the perceptive readings of this study will give new insights to those familiar with Humphreys’s work, it will be indispensable also to those coming to this major writer for the first time."
