About This Book

Welsh Ballads of the French Revolution (1793-1815) is an edition of ballads composed in the Welsh language during a momentous period in the history of Western civilization. The texts respond to the upheavals of the Revolutionary decade and its afermath, as people in Britain began to react to the violent deaths of the French monarchs, to the danger of invasion attempts or imitative revolts in Britain, and to the challenge of mobilization on a larger scale than ever before. Parallel translations of the texts, together with copious contextualizing notes, provide access for the first time to a corpus of ballads composed by a host of little-known authors. The volume thus puts both Wales and the ballad as a genre on the map of British reactions to the Revolution in France.
