Devolved voices: Welsh poetry in English since 1997

The development of Welsh poetry in English since 1997 will be the focus of this project, which includes plans to produce a wide range of publications. One full-length scholarly volume will place contemporary Welsh poetry in English in its wider British context, while another will provide detailed studies of major figures in the field. A book of extended interviews with key poets will provide in-depth engagement with practitioners, and a final book of essays will consider the specific question of poetic production within the context of Wales' devolutionary journey. The project will also launch a video-rich website that will provide an important record of poets reading their own work, discussions with the writers and interviews with other notable players on Wales' English-language poetry scene.
