Henry and Katharine Jenner

Henry and Katharine Jenner: A Celebration of Cornwall’s Culture, Language and Identity

Edited by Derek R. Williams

Paperback 267 pages
ISBN 978 1 903427 19 4

The book

This collection of essays is published to mark the centenary of the publication of Henry Jenner’s Handbook of the Cornish Language in 1904, a landmark in the revival of Cornwall’s ancient tongue, and to celebrate the contribution to Cornwall’s culture of Jenner and his wife, Kitty Lee.

Having helped Cornwall gain acceptance as a Celtic nation by the Pan-Celtic Congress, the Jenners went on to found the Old Cornwall Societies and Henry was to become Cornwall’s first Grand Bard. Kitty Lee was a talented painter, poet and novelist, whose work until now has received little recognition.

The book includes essays by Henry Jenner and poems by Jenner and Kitty Lee, with contributions by David Everett, Alan M. Kent, Donald Rawe, Tim Saunders, Brian Coombes and Derek R. Williams, who explore the Jenners’ writings, their achievements and their Anglo-Catholic and Royalist beliefs.

This book was produced in association with the Gorseth Kernow.
