Richard G. Jenkin, a great son of Cornwall

Edited by Derek R. Williams

326 pages
ISBN 978 1 903427 85 9

From the 1950s through to the 1990s, Richard Jenkin was at the very centre of Cornish cultural and political life and an important figure in the revival of Cornish consciousness. Chair of Mebyon Kernow – The Party for Cornwall, twice Grand Bard of Gorsedh Kernow, President of the International Celtic Congress, and President of the Federation of Old Cornwall Societies, he was also a writer,  editor, poet, preacher and speaker, and tireless champion of the Cornish language.

As well as original essays about various aspects of his work for Cornwall and the wider Celtic world by Jori Ansell, Bert Biscoe, Dick Cole, Ann Trevenen Jenkin, Conan Jenkin, Colin Murley, Donald R. Rawe, Peter W. Thomas, and Derek R. Williams, this book features examples of Jenkin’s writings, both poetry and prose, and reminiscences and tributes from personal friends and colleagues.

This book was produced in association with Gorsedh Kernow and with funding from a number of other organisations.

This product was added to our catalog on Wednesday 09 October, 2013.
