Drawing on the vast body of Welsh bardic poetry, from the earliest authors such as Taliesin and Aneurin to the revival of the eighteenth century with the work of Edward Williams under the guise of “Iolo Morgannwg,” Nash gives an impressive overviewMoreDrawing on the vast body of Welsh bardic poetry, from the earliest authors such as Taliesin and Aneurin to the revival of the eighteenth century with the work of Edward Williams under the guise of “Iolo Morgannwg,” Nash gives an impressive overview of the bardic system and its relation to the druids of old.Although very much a product of its time – originally published in 1858 – this volume provides a fascinating insight into not just the subject of Welsh bardic poetry in general, but also the romanticism towards the druids that flourished and marked much of the scholarship of the nineteenth century in this area, which has ultimately helped to influence the modern revival in many ways.
