Emeritus Professor Joseph P. Clancy Publishes New Book of Translations

September 19, 2016
The English and World Literatures department is thrilled to announce the newest book of translations from esteemed Professor Emeritus, Dr. Joseph Clancy.

Dafydd ap Gwilym was the finest medieval Welsh poet, producing over 150 innovative poems, encompassing themes of love and disappointment, sin and sanctity, comedy and despair, interacting with both the natural world and the transforming “modernity’ of fourteenth-century Wales. In this book, Joseph P. Clancy, the foremost translator of Welsh literature into English, employs the most recent editions of Dafydd’s full works and, for the first time, presents his poetry in an attempted sequence, allowing readers to see the development of the poet and his art. Above all, these new translations highlight Dafydd’s remarkable “literary self”, his finest creation.

Congratulations to Dr. Clancy!
