Review:

"A Guide to Welsh Literature c.1530-1700 mirrors the labours and mission of the scholars, poets, prose writers and translators whose works it seeks so succinctly and diligently to appreciate and evaluate. They would have revelled in its scholarship and erudition. It is a fitting tribute to their creativity and vision." -Books in Wales

," . . in the excellent Guides to Welsh Literature." -The Year's Work in English Studies

"The third volume of A Guide to Welsh Literature covers an poque in the history of Welsh literature which is characterised by profound changes in its form, function and content, reflecting equally profound changes in social and political structures . . . The book provides students of Welsh and Celtic with a fine survey of Welsh literature in the sixteenth and seventeenth centuries, and more with an impressive and up to date introduction to the intellectual life of Wales in this crucial period of its history." -Zeitschrift fr celtische Philologie

"The contributors to this volume do an excellent job of addressing the far-ranging effects of these developments on Welsh poetry and prose, while also highlighting the uniqueness of individual poets and writers . . . Given that this volume contains eleven chapters by eleven different contributions, it is remarkably coherent. While the thorough index makes this a very useful reference book, it can also be read straight through as a fluid narrative of literary history . . . Each chapter constitutes a solid introduction to its specific field . . ." -New Welsh Review
