Edward Thomas and Wales offers a fascinating reevaluation of Thomas's writing. Bringing together for the first time the prose and poetry centred in Thomas's ancestral land of Wales, it explores the 'Welshness' of Thomas's work and of Thomas himself. It offers us a context for the subjects, language choices, and tales that were informed by Thomas's childhood visits to Wales, as well as giving us a new perspective on Thomas.
Origins fascinate people, especially their own, and Edward Thomas was no exception. With extracts taken from Thomas's prose and poems, alongside a selection of key life events, the importance of Thomas's Welsh origins and the ways in which Wales the place, its people, and its literature permeated his life and writings is revealed.
