Alan Llwyd Other books by Alan Llwyd
Kate Roberts was our "Queen of Letters", according to the popular description of her, and here at last is a full and detailed biography of our principal prose writer.
Kate Roberts was a prominent author, a prolific journalist and a major benefactor. She was one of the earliest members of the National Party and was the owner of Y Faner. She served Wales on various committees and in eisteddfods, and was prominent in several national and local campaigns, including the one to establish Ysgol Twm o'r Nant school in Denbigh. She lived a varied and industrious life, but also a life that was filled with tragedy and sadness.
This is the biography of 'the most important Welsh woman of the 20th century', as Kate Roberts is referred to by the author. It is also a fearless biography that relies on quotes from her diary. Alan Llwyd's detailed research and wide knowledge throws new light on the work of Kate Roberts, by revealing the close relationship between the work and the life. This is an essential biography.
