Rhys Lewis by Daniel Owen
James Harris’s 1888 translation of the Welsh-language novel by Daniel Owen, with an afterword by Rob Mimpriss. Three young men of similar parentage choose contrasting paths through life. Will Bryan, mischievous and charming, sets his sight on success in business, while Robert Lewis the mineworker, unjustly excluded from the Methodist chapel, begins a political crusade against injustice. Meanwhile, Robert’s younger brother, Rhys, has set his heart on becoming a preacher. This classic novel, teeming with strikers, shopkeepers, peasants and thieves, provides a vivid cross-section of Wales at a turning point in its history, and a profound meditation on the conflict between the strictures of religious morality and the natural goodness of the human heart.
