Saunders Lewis was an author, poet and literary critic. He was a Nobel nominee for literature in 1970 and is perhaps one of the most well-known Welsh language authors. However, his most important legacy is the effect that he had on the Welsh Nationalist movement, from being a founding member of Plaid Cymru, (founded as Plaid Genedlaethol Cymru or ‘Welsh National Party’), to inspiring the creation of the Welsh Language Society. Lewis was a man whose life can be characterized as one led with great conviction and dedication to an ideal that seemed impossible to realise.
This talk explores the life and legacy of Saunders Lewis, the history of Militant Welsh Nationalism and what lessons we can take from it’s struggle.
