Welsh Literature Anthology launched at The Open University in Wales

On 6 July the OU in Wales was delighted to host the launch of The Old Red Tongue – An Anthology of Welsh Literature.

The Old Red Tongue is a major anthology of over 300 texts – poems, plays, memoirs, essays, extracts from novels and short stories, hymns, eulogies, elegies, medieval prose, political and theological commentaries – from nearly 200 writers covering every period from the 6th century to the present day with a bilingual text. 

The launch event featured contributions from the book’s editors and publisher as well as readings from some of the writers whose work is featured in the anthology.

Hannah Pudner, Assistant Director, External Strategy at the OU in Wales said:

“We are pleased and proud to be able to support the publication of this important work. The Old Red Tongue is a highly impressive volume which makes a major contribution to the study and enjoyment of Welsh literature.” 

The book is edited by Gwyn Griffiths and Meic Stephens with an introduction by Dafydd Johnston and is supported by The Open University in Wales. The book is published by Francis Boutle in the Lesser Used Languages of Europe series and is now available to buy on their website.
