MedievalWelshPoetry


A new edition of 30 medieval Welsh poems dating from the fourteenth and fifteenth centuries, the classic period of court poetry in the cywydd metre. Divided into topics which include Poets to Patrons, Love, Fantasy and Folk-lore, Humour and Satire and Politics and Prophecy, the poems represent the work of leading cywyddwyr such as Madog Benfras, Dafydd ap Gwilym, Iolo Goch, Tudur Aled and Guto’r Glyn. Anonymous and less well-known poems, many of them unavailable in modern editions, are also represented.

Helen Fulton is professor at the Department of English and Related Literature, Centre for Medieval Studies, University of York.
