Llyfr sy'n dadlau sut y gwnaeth cysyniadau ynghylch cenedl (rhyw) effeithio ar hunaniaeth y Cymry. Mae'n cyflwyno nifer o awduron benywaidd a fu'n ysgrifennu yn y cyfnod 1780-1900 yn y Gymraeg a'r Saesneg. Mae hefyd yn olrhain sut y gwnaeth gwragedd yn benodol ddehongli 'genedigaeth' y genedl Gymreig fodern. Adargraffiad; cyhoeddwyd gyntaf yn 2007, ISBN 9780708320600.

This book argues that the way in which people came to perceive and to represent themselves as Welsh was profoundly affected by the gender ideologies during the period. It introduces readers to a number of Welsh women authors at work during the years 1780-1900, some writing in Welsh and some in English. It traces the coming into being of the Welsh nation as its women in particular saw it.
This is the second edition of a book first published in 2007 which rapidly – and deservedly – established itself as the standard work on the subject. Jane Aaron previously addressed this topic in Welsh (Pur fel y Dur, 1998); the book under review, which discusses writing in both the languages of Wales, makes the results of the author’s extensive research available in English and considers the work of over 100 authors in a wide range of genres: poetry, the novel, hymn-writing, essays, translations, history, and antiquarian and travel writing.

Its approach is essentially chronological, which has the great advantage of emphasising the shift in attitudes to Wales during the nineteenth century, from the emphasis on Romantic landscapes inhabited by Noble Savages at the beginning of the century through responses to the 1847 Report on education and on to the fight for suffrage and Home Rule by its end.

As the second half of the book’s title makes clear, its aim is not only to present the history of women’s writing in Wales during the nineteenth century but also to trace the growth of Welsh identity; the account it offers is firmly rooted in the historical context of social change during this period (in attitudes to religion, the growth of the temperance movement, greater access to education, and the wider opportunities for employment and therefore financial independence that it brought).

The quantity and variety of women’s writing in Wales in the nineteenth century presents particular challenges to anyone aiming to discuss it, both in detail, at the level of individual works, and more broadly, at the level of literary, political and cultural trends; this book succeeds both in communicating the characteristics of individual writers’ works and their intrinsic interest, and also in relating them to the survival of a sense of Welsh identity by the end of the century – a survival to which their writing made an important contribution.

Bywgraffiad Awdur:
Jane Aaron is Professor of English at the University of Glamorgan. She is the author of Pur fel y Dur - Y Gymraes yn Llên Menywod y Bedwaredd Ganrif ar Bymtheg (Gwasg Prifysgol Cymru, 1998) and edited Our Sisters’ Land (reprinted 2004) and Postcolonial Wales (2005).
Gwybodaeth Bellach:
Nineteenth-Century Women’s Writing in Wales - Nation, Gender and Identity introduces readers to a hundred Welsh women authors at work during the years 1780-1900, some writing in Welsh and some in English. In so doing, it rescues many of these authors from critical neglect and oblivion. In the second half of the nineteenth century in particular, Welsh women writers in both languages were numerous and enjoyed a degree of influence on Welsh culture easily commensurate with that of women writers today.

By covering the nineteenth century chronologically, this book traces the coming into being of the Welsh nation as its women in particular saw it, and as they helped to create it.
