"This fascinating anthology of letters ranges over eight centuries of life in Wales and provides an enthralling commentary on its development. The letters bring Welsh history to life through vivid vignettes of personal experience and all too human opinion. While seemingly devoted to events in Wales the correspondents are also measuring Wales' place in Britain, Europe and the world as geographical boundaries expanded out of the Old World. The selection shows how intimately Wales has been bound up with the rest of the British Isles and the extraordinary contribution it has made to life here. From Kings, Princes and Bishops to writers, artists and politicians, from the medieval machinations of Glyndwr and Hotspur to industrial disputes, from Oliver Cromwell to Lloyd George, George Eliot to Dylan Thomas, Edward I to Evelyn Waugh a richly textured, informative and entertaining book emerges.
