Wales has a rich literary tradition, not least in the twentieth century, which despite the decline of the Welsh language during that period, was to prove a high point in the long history of Welsh literature. The same period also saw the emergence of significant Welsh writing in English. This module provides a general overview of the development of Welsh literature in the modern period, concentrating especially on some of the key figures of the twentieth-century Welsh literature. The main focus will be on Welsh-language material in English translation, but there will also be some discussion of Welsh writing generated in English.
