Abstract and Keywords

This article examines the history of Welsh modernism. It attempts to substantiate Gwyn A. Williams' desire for an account of modernism that addresses internal differences. The article suggests that a distinctive Welsh modernism emerged as a belated phenomenon, engaged in infusing high-modernist claims into a subversive internalized modernism. Based on this view, there are two broad patterns in the discussion of Welsh modernism. One is the emergence of Welsh modernism in terms of its European counterparts, and the other is modernist writing in Wales in relation to a broader definition of the modernist project defined in Anglo-American literary terms.

Keywords: Welsh modernism, Gwyn A. Williams, internalized modernism, modernist writing, Anglo-American literature
