‘In a characteristically generous and discerning collection of essays, M. Wynn Thomas ranges widely through Welsh writing in English, displaying in the process his marvellous command of language. This is criticism at its best, as sociable as it is perceptive.’

-Catherine Belsey, Professor Emeritus in English, Swansea University

‘M. Wynn Thomas is more than just Wales’s finest and most perceptive critic – he is one of the rare intellectuals who can be said to have founded a discipline, and nurtured it for others. All That Is Wales bears the hallmarks of Thomas’s criticism – rigorously-written, closely-read and culturally-alive.’

-Patrick McGuinness, Professor of French and Comparative Literature, University of Oxford
