Casgliad o gerddi a rhyddiaith a deunyddiau o bapurau newydd, almanaciau a chyfnodolion Cymru yn ystod y Chwyldro Ffrengig, o 1789 i 1802.
This ground-breaking anthology presents loyalist and radical poetry and prose from the newspapers, almanacs and periodicals current in Wales from the outbreak of the French Revolution in 1789 to the Peace of Amiens in 1802, together with an extended introduction and two maps.
This book was produced as part of the research project carried out by the Centre for Advanced Welsh and Celtic Studies entitled 'Wales and the French Revolution', and presents a selection of material published in the annual Welsh almanacs, in English provincial newspapers published in Hereford, Shrewsbury and Chester which carried material relating to Wales, and in the three radical Welsh newspapers of the mid-1790s; English translations are provided for texts in Welsh and Latin.
Topics covered in the anthology (of almost a hundred pieces of prose and poetry) range from Loyal Addresses to the Crown, accounts of the French landing at Fishguard in 1797 and of the trial of Dissenters accused of helping them, an explanation of the meaning of Jacobin' and 'Jacobinism, the text of the Supplementary Militia Act of 1797, essays on the nature of authority and the British system of government, poems by Iolo Morganwg, Jac Glan-y-gors and Dafydd Ddu Eryri, arguments for a Welsh Enlightenment project, and a poem from a dog who objected to a proposed dog-tax. The anthology is prefaced by a comprehensive and detailed introduction which discusses the sources, contents and authors (where known) of the texts and places them in their political, social and historical context.
The book presents a varied, lively and stimulating picture of a nation in debate with itself on the most important events of the period, and will be a valuable resource for all those interested in Welsh responses to the French Revolution.

Dr Marion Löffler is a Research Fellow at the University of Wales Centre for Welsh and Celtic Studies in Aberystwyth, Wales.
The serial literature current in Wales between 1789 and 1802 is the most important public repository of radical, loyalist and patriotic Welsh responses to the French Revolution and the Revolutionary Wars.
This in-depth volume reviews the Welsh political pamphlets and sermons of the period, focusing on the debates between religious Dissenters, Methodists and the Church; radicals and loyalists; as well as pacifists and patriotic war supporters. It presents a selection of poetry and prose published in the annual Welsh almanacs, the English provincial newspapers published close to Wales’s border and the three radical Welsh periodicals of the mid-1790s, together with translations of the Welsh texts.
An extended introduction sketches out the printing culture of Wales, analyses its public discourse and interprets the Welsh voices in their British political context. Its second part presents annotated editions of five important Welsh political pamphlets with full translation, thus making them accessible to an English-speaking audience for the first time.
