Glyn Jones

Glyn Jones (1905-1995) was a poet, short-storywriter and novelist. Born in Merthyr Tydfil into a Welsh-speaking family, his education was entirely in English and he became a teacher in Cardiff and Bridgend. In addition to three novels, three volumes of stories and a posthumous Collected Poems, he also published The Dragon Has Two Tongues, a seminal piece of autobiographical writing which included personal appreciations of writers in both the languages of Wales. This attempt to bridge the two literary cultures is continued in A People's Poetry.
