The dragon has two tongues : essays on Anglo-Welsh writers and writing by Glyn Jones( )

20 editions published between 1968 and 2018 in English and Undetermined and held by 1,516 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"First published in 1968, The Dragon Has Two Tongues was the first book-length study of the English-language literature of Wales. Written by one of Wales's major English-language writers of fiction and poetry, it includes chapters dealing with the work of Dylan Thomas, Caradoc Evans, Jack Jones, Gwyn Thomas and Idris Davies, all of whom Glyn Jones knew personally." "This first-hand knowledge of the writers, coupled with the shrewdness of Glyn Jones's critical comments, established The Dragon Has Two Tongues as an invaluable study of this generation of Welsh writers. At the same time, it contains Glyn Jones's own autobiographical reflections on his life and literary career, his loss and rediscovery of the Welsh language, and the cultural shifts which resulted in the emergence of a distinctive English-language literature in Wales in the early decades of the twentieth century." "Although a classic study, The Dragon Has Two Tongues has long been out of print. Tony Brown had the opportunity to discuss the book with Glyn Jones before his death in 1995 and has had access to Glyn Jones's own proposed revisions and to manuscript drafts. This first paperback edition therefore included some updating of the text and a new bibliography."--BOOK JACKET

The valley, the city, the village by Glyn Jones( Book )

18 editions published between 1956 and 2011 in English and held by 192 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

An artist at heart, Trystan Morgan grows up in his grandmother's valley mining cottage, duty-bound by her deep wish for him to be a preacher. He comes from farming stock and longs to paint the Welsh countryside of his people. But he agrees to study at the city university although his adolescent mind revolts at the social posturing around him. Trystan's journey through the conflicting cultural, social and political values of his country in the mid-twentieth century is bewildering but finally liberating. And through the glittering, crowded, kaleidoscopic images of this bravura novel, the author creates a rich impression of people and place; a Wales which is a landscape of the mind. Glyn Jones was one of the giants of twentieth-century Welsh writing whether as short story writer, critic or poet, and here in his remarkable novel of 1956, he creates a narrative of exceptional power that draws on all these gifts
The collected poems of Glyn Jones by Glyn Jones( Book )

4 editions published in 1996 in English and held by 141 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

One of the most important writers of twentieth-century Wales, and a master of the short-story form, Glyn Jones regarded himself as primarily a poet. This volume gathers all Glyn Jones's previously published poems, together with a number which are published here for the first time. They include the complete text of 'Seven Keys to Shaderdom', a long, complex poem on which he worked during his last years, and in which he found some remarkable, sometimes disturbing things to say about the lot of the artist (whether writer or painter) in Wales today. The editor, Meic Stephens, has provided notes on the provenance of the poems and thrown light on many of the allusions and uncommon words of which the poet was so fond. His chronology of the writer's life and work, and a valuable introduction by Mercer Simpson, are designed to help the student, teacher and general reader to a fuller appreciation of these fine poems
