"In this remarkable work Katie Gramich draws on the full range of Robert's writings and on available secondary resources as well as interviews, letters, and papers in the archives of the National Library of Wales. The biographical material is handled carefully and attentively, avoiding simplification. This is a very accomplished example of the genre, opening up a lot of new material and providing a basis for further research and interpretation."--Fiona Robertson, Birmingham City University 'This volume, which provides a new perspective on the life and works of Kate Roberts, is written in a very accessible style. The coverage of Roberts' playwriting and of her non-fictional prose is much more extensive than in previous critical biographies, and the relation between the life and works, is illuminatingly detailed. Throughout, the focus is on Roberts as a woman writer, on her concern with the female perspective and on her own rather isolated position as a major female contributor to Welsh-language writing. Altogether then, the volume fulfils its promise of providing a fresh assessment in English of this important figure in the history of twentieth-century fiction.' Professor Jane Aaron (University of Glamorgan)
