Abstract:

Welsh Writing, Political Action and Incarceration examines the prison
literature of certain iconic Welsh authors whose political lives and creative
writings are linked to ideas about Wales and the Welsh language. Through this
case study, the author interrogates the nature of political activism and
social movements, including the use of violence and non-violent approaches to
protest. Also examined are the function and significance of variations in
literary form, style and language in this prison literature along with the
motivations driving each of these prison authors and the effects of their
texts on their readers - their community outside of prison, and upon society
more widely. This work successfully challenges orthodox perspectives on this
body of prison literature. In adopting a case study approach the author
universalizes the Welsh experience, drawing insights from international
research on prison literature, the political science of protest and the
sociology of language.
