About this product
- DescriptionAn artist at heart, Trystan Morgan grows up in his grandmother's valley mining cottage, duty-bound by her deep wish for him to be a preacher. He comes from farming stock and longs to paint the Welsh countryside of his people. But he agrees to study at the city university although his adolescent mind revolts at the social posturing around him. Trystan's journey through the conflicting cultural, social and political values of his country in the mid-twentieth century is bewildering but finally liberating. And through the glittering, crowded, kaleidoscopic images of this bravura vel, the author creates a rich impression of people and place; a Wales which is a landscape of the mind.
- Author BiographyGlyn Jones was born in 1905. One of the giants of twentieth-century Welsh writing, he published novels, poetry, short story collections, translations and works of criticism until his death in 1995. He received several awards for his contributions to literature in Wales. Brought up in a Welsh-speaking, chapel-going family, Glyn Jones was educated in English, which remained his primary writing language, although he read and spoke fluent Welsh. The first chairman and then vice president of Yr Academi Gymreig (English section), he was deeply concerned with supporting the literature of both languages.
