‘This study is invaluable as an account of the troubled status of the English language in Welsh identity.’
-Professor Murray Pittock, University of Glasgow

‘Lewis Morris (Llywelyn Du o Fôn), Evan Evans (Ieuan Fardd, or Ieuan Brydydd Hir) and Edward Williams (Iolo Morganwg) – the very names by which these bilingual eighteenth-century poets were known declared their conflicting allegiances as “Britons”. The term signified for them the Welsh as Ancient Britons, but for the governing state it grew to mean something very different as the century witnessed the birth of “Great Britain”. In this fascinating and pioneering study, Bethan M. Jenkins ably dissects these writers’ various positions on Britishness, and argues for their significance in the formation of Welsh writing in English.’
-Professor Jane Aaron, University of South Wales

‘This is a lively and engaged account of a period in Welsh literary history which has too often fallen from sight between disciplines and departments dividing Welsh and English literatures. Bethan Jenkins’s study of three fascinating and influential eighteenth-century Welsh-speaking authors writing in English offers some revealing insights into the challenges and complexities of their bilingual and bicultural world.’
-Dr Mary-Ann Constantine, University of Wales Centre for Advanced Welsh and Celtic Studies
