A book examining the reactions of Welsh-American writers to the Civil War. This study considers the letters and diaries of soldiers and civilians as well as the poetry and prose of Welsh America's more 'professional' writers. It looks at ways in which the Civil War affected the articulation of Welsh-American national identity, and their attitude towards Abolition, etc.

Gwybodaeth Bellach:
Nearly ten thousand pages of writing in the Welsh language stemming directly from the American Civil War has survived in print and in manuscript. This is the first book-length treatment in English of a new field - the reactions of Welsh-American writers to the Civil War. This study defines 'literature' broadly, considering the letters and diaries of soldiers and civilians who lived through the war as well as the poetry and prose of Welsh America's more 'professional' writers. It looks at ways in which the Civil War effected the articulation of Welsh-American national identity, and it examines literary expressions of Welsh-speaking Americans' commitment to the cause of Abolition.
". . . of interest both to historians and to literary critics. It comprehensively and thoroughly documents the reaction of Welsh-speaking Welsh-Americans to the looming crisis over slavery and disunion and to the War itself, using both printed and ms. sources. It also touches upon the more "belles lettres" dimension of this reaction, sometimes in ways that refer back to the poetic traditions of Wales, and sometimes in ways that interconnect with contemporary Anglophone literary responses (e.g., in the case of Harriet Beecher Stowe)...very well written, which would suggest that it might reach out to some of the huge trans-Atlantic audience for popular Civil War history."
