Their two remarkable classics of the Welsh language, combining religious allegory, social commentary, and a deep concern with the people and culture of Wales during an age of enormous political upheaval, are presented in modern translations by T. Gwynn Jones and Rob Mimpriss, and accomponied by introductions reflecting on their significance and relevance today.
