Much my most imposing book of the year was a terrific anthology of Welsh literature down the ages called The Old Red Tongue edited by Gwyn Griffiths and Meic Stephens (Francis Bootle Publishers). It is one of a series of such books dedicated to the lesser-used languages of Europe, and it covers the entire Welsh literary corpus, from the sixth century to the present, in the original and in English translation. It is almost 1,000 pages long, and I defy any sensitive reader to remain unmoved by its marvellous seductions of art, pride, pathos and imagination.
— Jan Morris, recommended in Books of the Year, The Spectator

*The Old Red Tongue: anthology of Welsh literature is volume eight in the unique Lesser Used Languages of Europe Series, published by Francis Boutle.
