Waldo Williams (1904–1971) is considered one of the most important Welsh poets of the twentieth century and has been much discussed by literary critics, who find his poems some of the most rewarding and challenging of the century. He was a folk poet who celebrated the way of life and people of his local area, but also wrote on universal themes of pacifism, faith, the brotherhood of humankind, belonging and understanding one another. This edition of his collection The Peacemakers comprises his most famous poems in the original Welsh, plus translations into English by esteemed poet and translator Tony Conran. It was first published by Gomer Press in 1997 but has been out of print for many years. It is a facsimile edition with a new cover and, with its parallel English translations of Waldo’s most famous poems, is the perfect entry-point to his work for non-Welsh speakers.
