`Twenty years ago it would have seemed impossible that Wales, popularlyconsidered a country of sour stone, hideous defamation, and colourlessmountains, should have yielded literature for which perhaps a close precedentis the Impressionist period of painting. For Welsh writers seem to have made precisely the discovery that French painters made almost a hundred years ago;they have decided to paint in the open air.`
