This anthology presents a selection of Welsh-language poems written in response to the French Revolution, the Revolutionary Wars, and the controversies they raised in Britain. Here edited and translated for the first time, these poems reveal how writers based in Wales and London engaged with the Revolutionary debate and explored notions of Welshness and Britishness in eisteddfodic odes, daring satires, and praise poems to both regional and national heroes.
