Out Of Print...Volume 3... Saunders Lewis is that rarity, the writer of the century. More than that, as far as Wales is concerned, in the absence of a native tradition, he has invented a dramatic literature for Welsh-speaking Wales so distinguished in its quality as to reside unself-consciously beside all others. The diversity of his range and his development in the theatrical craft are brilliantly and faithfully re-created for the English-speaking world here by Joseph Clancy. The 'audible rhythms and the music of speech' that 'are of necessity called -for in the theatre', are everywhere present-so that these translations, though loyal in style, expression and allusion to the original-are designed for actors in performance as well as for readers of the printed page.
