More Info

This is the first book-length study in English of Gwenlyn Parry (1932-91), the Welsh writer best known for his major stage plays, including "Saer Doliau," "Y Twr," and "Panto," as well as his works for television and film, such as the soap opera "Pobol y Cwm," the sitcom "Fo a Fe," and the cult BBC TV film "Grand Slam." Roger Owen takes into consideration the scope and variety of Parry's work, which often dwells on a despairing and solitary search for meaning in existence. He reveals Parry as a writer whose theatrical vision was both facilitated and impeded by his dedication to the spoken dialect of his native Arfon and whose work mediated between the extremes in his life and work: the personal and private, absurdism and populism.
