The work of Dafydd y Coed is published here together with that of six other poets of the second half of the fifteenth century whose work is preserved in the Red Book of Hergest. The enormous variation in the topics of the poems – praise poems, religious poems and satyrical poems to specific individuals and places – reflects the variety of the poetry found in this extraordinary manuscript.
