Medieval Welsh Literature (English Medium only)

By studying the central canon of Welsh texts students develop a sound knowledge of the language, culture and thought of the Middle and Medieval periods in Wales. Students read and appreciate the most important of Middle Welsh texts in the original language, and they discuss the narrative techniques, characterisation, themes and structure of these tremendously important texts. Students also encounter important texts from neighbouring cultures and traditions, such as Anglo-Saxon, Irish and Late Latin, so that they fully contextualise the central literary artefacts of their study.
