Waldo Williams


Waldo Williams (1904-71) is arguably the greatest Welsh-language poet of the twentieth century on the strength of his only collection, Dail Pren (Leaves of a Tree, 1956). Quaker, pacifist, anti-imperialist and (in Anthony Conran’s words) ‘patron saint of the language movement’, he remains a cultural icon in Wales.
