First published in 1968, The Dragon has Two Tongues was the first book-length study of the English-language literature of Wales. Written by one of Walesa€™s major English-language writers of fiction and poetry, it includes chapters dealing with the work of Dylan Thomas, Caradoc Evans, Jack Jones, Gwyn Thomas and Idris Davies, all of whom Glyn Jones knew personally. This first-hand knowledge of the writers, coupled with the shrewdness of Glyn Jonesa€™s critical comments, established The Dragon Has Two Tongues as an invaluable study of this generation of Welsh writers. At the same time, it contains Glyn Jonesa€™s own autobiographical reflections on his life and literary career, his loss and rediscovery of the Welsh language, and the cultural shifts which resulted in the emergence of a distinctive English-language literature in Wales in the early decades of the twentieth century. Although a classic study, The Dragon Has Two Tongues has long been out-of-print. Tony Brown had the opportunity to discuss the book with Glyn Jones before his death in 1995 and has had access to Glyn Jonesa€™s own proposed revisions and to manuscript drafts. This first paperback edition therefore includes some updating of the text and a new bibliography.This first paperback edition therefore includes some updating of the text and a new bibliography.
