The book

Tim Saunders has gathered together more than a hundred poems from a variety of sources – magazines, books and manuscripts – to give us the first ever survey of poetry in the Cornish language from 1850 until 1980.

Among the thirty-six contributors are Henry Jenner and Robert Morton Nance, probably the most important figures in the early revival of Cornish poetry and literature, as well as writers like Richard Gendall, Tony Snell, Donald Rawe and Saunders himself, who have brought confidence and maturity to the language and its literature.

The book contains biographies of the writers, notes and valuable source material. The poems are accompanied by prose translations into English and there is a guide to pronunciation.

Tim Saunders is one of the leading poets writing in Cornish today.

Amy Hale is Research Fellow in Contemporary Celtic Studies at the Institute of Cornish Studies.
