The Cambridge History of Welsh Literature, co-edited by Professor Helen Fulton, has just been published by Cambridge University Press. Containing 35 chapters by world-leading scholars, this is the first comprehensive single-volume history of the literature of Wales in both languages, from the earliest medieval texts to contemporary writing in the twenty-first century. The editors, Helen Fulton and Geraint Evans, will be appearing at the Hay Festival on 24 May 2019.
Prof. Fulton is Chair in Medieval Literature at the University of Bristol, where she researches the history and politics of medieval literature, classical reception in the Middle Ages, Celtic studies, Arthurian literature, medieval urban literature, and cultural exchanges between England and Wales in the Middle Ages. Her current projects include an edition of medieval Welsh political poetry, an edition of the medieval Welsh version of the Troy legend, Ystorya Dared, and a monograph on literary representations of the city in medieval British literature.
