What do you think when you see the words ‘Welsh poetry’? Cynghanedd, perhaps? That astonishingly complex set of stylistic rules which govern the bardic epics? Well, Poeth! will make you think again. A selection of modern poetry in colloquial Welsh, Poeth! mixes the written word with some stunning artwork to create a book that’s more captivating than it has any right to be.

The perfect coffee table book to dip into at random, whenever the mood takes you, Poeth!
is full of surprises. From the first poem in the
book, the amusingly daft Sglodion di-ri (Beryl

Steeden Jones), to the poignant Nhad (Gwynne Williams), to the thought provoking A gymri di Gymru? (Robat Gruffudd), Poeth! will charm the pants off you. Handily, Poeth! also includes vocabulary on every page, which will be essential for learners as some of the Welsh is very colloquial indeed.

What’s also a bit different about Poeth! is the great artwork that’s used through the book. Varying from photography to cartoons to more abstract art, each piece complements the poem that it accompanies, adding to the mood and providing a visual context.

All in all, Poeth! is a visual and poetic feast that won’t go cold on you!
