Burning Down the Dosbarth

David Greenslade  Other books by David Greenslade

Burning Down the Dosbarth, published by Y Lolfa, is now in its second edition. Reviewers have consistently praised the collection as "magical unpredictable poems laced with venom" (Y Faner Goch) and as being, "racy pungent and tantalising" (Ninnau). This hypnotically illustrated, 48 page book plunges into the many difficulties experienced by non Welsh speakers as they work to regain their language at the domestic, community, national or spiritual level. It makes essential reading for anyone interested in Wales historic sense of struggle and defiance.
