Pryderi's Pigs and Other Poems

138 pages57 minutes


This is my second collection of poetry (the first was King Arthur’s Raid on Hell and other poems). Most of these poems are written in medieval fixed forms, or approximations of medieval forms – one of my on-going quests being a search for ways of reproducing the sound and feel of medieval Welsh poetry in modern English. And yet, because the bardic art I practice is a performance art, these are in a larger sense not my poems at all, but merely pale imitations – poems preserved on paper. Until I can come and sing the real poems to you, I hope you will enjoy the substitutes.
