On July 5th, Grahame Davies took part in a reading in Cardiff to celebrate the publication of The Old Red Tongue: An anthology of Welsh Literature.
The 1000-page book, edited by Meic Stephens and Gwyn Griffiths, contains items from nearly 200 writers covering every period from the 6th century to the present day, in the original Welsh with English translation.
Grahame Davies is represented by the poem 'Coch' ('Red') which comments ironically on the continuity between inter-war socialism and contemporary Welsh nationalism. He is one of some 100 writers represented from the 20th Century.
The book, published by Francis Boutle of London, is the latest in a series devoted to the 'Lesser Used Languages' of Europe. It can be purchased here.
