Wales (Classic Reprint) free pdf Excerpt from Wales In this first attempt at writing a continuous popular history of Wales, I am afraid that the mass of details tends to obscure the outlines of the story of a very simple and definite development. In the first half I try to sketch the rise and fall of a princely caste- in the second, the rise of a self-educated, self-governing peasantry. Rome left its heritage of political unity and organisation to a Welsh governing tribal caste- the princes were alternately the oppressing organisers of their own people and their defenders against England. The literature of the princes are the courtly tales of the Mabinogion and the exquisitely artistic odes of Davydd ap Gwilym and his contemporaries. The princes were crushed by the Plantagenets, their descendants dispossessed by the Lancastrians or Anglicised by the Tudors. On their disappearance, a lower subject class became prominent, inheriting their changing traditions, and feebly imitating their decaying literature. This class, with stronger thought and increasing material wealth, rules Wales to-day. About the Publisher Forgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.
