Description

Prolegomena to the Study of Old Welsh Poetry

by Edward Anwyl

"Since the later Middle Ages, the traditional Welsh poetic metres in strict verse consist of twenty four different metrical forms written in cynghanedd.

An awdl is a form of long poem, similar to the ode. The most popular metrical forms are the Cywydd, of 14th century origin, and the several versions of the Englyn, a concise and allusive verse form similar to the Greek epigram and the Japanese haiku and as old as Welsh literature itself."

About the Author:

"Sir Edward Anwyl (August 5, 1866 ? August 8, 1914), was a Welsh academic, specializing in the Celtic languages.

Anwyl was born in Chester, England, and educated at the King's School, Chester. He went on to study at Oriel College, Oxford, and Mansfield College, Oxford. In 1892 he became Professor of Welsh at the University of Wales, Aberystwyth, and was later appointed Professor of Comparative Philology. He was knighted in 1911. In 1913, he became Principal of the newly-founded. Monmouthshire Training College at Caerleon."
