The work of an original haunting poet comes to life again, after fifty years. Lynette Roberts was born in Buenos Aires, a Welsh writer whose best work stands alongisde that of her near-contemporaries: David Jones, R. S. Thomas and Dylan Thomas, and yet an outsider in Wales. She is a war poet: her two published collections are about a woman's life in wartime. But she is also a love poet and a poet of the hearth. A late-modernist, she moves between the mythic and the domestic voices. Her work was praised by, among others, T. S. Eliot, Wyndham Lewis and Robert Graves. Experimental and challenging, Roberts opens out the language of poetry, exploring extremes of subject, scale and conception. Now this extraordinary poet is restored to her place in the development of twentieth-century British poetry.

Lynette Roberts is an extraordinary modernist poet and novelist, with her vivid imagery and restless experimentalism. Her writing displays a kind of double longing – for Wales, and for the Argentina she left behind. Her poetry constantly moves between the colours, mythologies and landscapes of the two countries and, in so doing, poses a series of important questions: where, and what, is home? How do we inhabit a particular time and place? This volume of essays brings together for the first time some of the most important research on Roberts’s work that has emerged since the landmark republication of her Collected Poems in 2005. Written by a range of prominent scholars, writers and poets, each essay strives in some way to ‘place’ Roberts, analysing the environments to which her writing responds and teasing out the interwoven skeins of her national, cultural and political affiliations. Together, they pinpoint key concerns in Roberts’s elusive, haunting work, and define her original contribution to twentieth-century literary culture.

New Territories In Modernism

Author : Laura Wainwright

Until very recently, Welsh literary Modernism has been critically neglected, both within and outside Wales. This is the first book devoted solely to the study of Welsh literary Modernism, revealing and examining eight key Anglophone Welsh writers. Laura Wainwright demonstrates how their linguistic experimentation constituted an engagement with the unprecedented linguistic, social and cultural changes that were the making of modern Wales, and formed the crucible for the emergence of a distinct Welsh Modernism. This study of Welsh Modernism challenges conventional literary histories and, in more than one sense, takes Modernism and Modernist studies into new territories.
