Lewis Glyn Cothi

Lewis Glyn Cothi

▪ Welsh poet
also called  Llywelyn y Glyn 
flourished 1447–86

      Welsh bard whose work reflects an awakening of national consciousness among the Welsh.

      Reputedly a native of Carmarthenshire, Lewis was, during the Wars of the Roses, a zealous Lancastrian and partisan of Jasper Tudor, the uncle of Henry VII of England. His awdl (ode) satirizing the men of Chester, his bitterest enemies, is a vigorous composition. (According to tradition he was expelled from that city after marrying a widow without the consent of the burgesses.) In 1837 a collection containing 154 of his surviving 230 poems (many written in his own hand) was published in London. The publication of his entire works began in 1953, through the cooperation of the National Library of Wales and the University of Wales Press Board, with Evan David Jones serving as editor.
