Summary
"Examining how we interpret Welshness today, this volume brings together fourteen essays that examine the range of representations of Welsh mythology, folklore, and ritual in popular culture. Together, these interdisciplinary essays explore the ways that Welsh motifs have proliferated in this age of cultural cross-pollination, spreading worldwide the myths of one small British nation"--Provided by publisher
