Emyr Humphreys, poet, novelist, short-story writer and dramatist, is one of the foremost literary figures in Wales. For more than forty years he has interpreted the world of Welsh-speaking Wales, sympathetically but without sentiment, both to those who are a part of it and to those who observe it from the outside. This collection of published and unpublished poems, a few in Welsh but the majority in English, brought together by the author, represents all the poetry which he wishes to see preserved. Emyr Humphrey's poetry is characterised by a strong and direct emotional appeal, and this volume, which contains poems written over many years arranged in roughly chronological order, amply demonstrates his mastery in conveying the dilemmas and conflicts which are implicit in the human condition.
