This three-volume edition of the correspondence of Iolo Morganwg offers unique insights into the career and works of one of the most creative and influential figures in the history of modern Wales. A total of 1, 230 letters vividly reveal the extent of his multifarious interests and the diverse networks of friends, acquaintances, and enemies who brought both blessing and curses into his turbulent life. One of the finest exponents of the epistolary arts of his own day, Morganwg comes across in the letters as a garrulous, digressive figure, warm-blooded in his patriotism, devoted to his native tongue and its literature, and implacably opposed to injustice and cruelty. This fully annotated edition provides fascinating reading for anyone interested in Welsh society, the world happenings of Romanticism, and the literature of Britain and Wales.
