Further Information:
The heroic story of Hedd Wyn, who posthumusly won the Chair at the Birkenhead National Eisteddfod in 1917 is one of the most potent myths of twentieth century Wales, and as the centenery of his death draws nearer, the hold that this story has over us is as strong as ever.

This is a new edition of the popular bilingual book published by Cyhoeddiadau Barddas in 2009. Included is a new Introduction by the author along with one very important addition to the original text: the letter sent by Hedd Wyn from France to the National Eisteddfod with his entry for the Chair in 1917 – a letter which appeared in 'Y Faner', 6 October, 1917.

This book makes an important contribution to the remebrance and preservation of the story of Hedd Wyn, and in ensuring that the poet’s voice will be heard by ‘all ages to come’.
