The book

This collection of essays celebrates the life and work of Robert Morton Nance (Mordon), artist, folklorist, writer, maritime historian, founder of the Old Cornwall Societies and Grand Bard of the Cornish Gorsedd, whose work on the standardisation of the Cornish language – Unified Cornish – and books such as Cornish for All and An English-Cornish and Cornish-English Dictionary inspired a generation of Cornish speakers.

As well as contributions from Charles Thomas, Brian Murdoch, Rod Lyon, Ann Trevenen Jenkin, Hugh Miners, Peter Thomas, Donald Rawe, Derek Williams, Alan Kent and Brian Coombes, the book contains reminiscences and examples of Nance’s own writings, including Cornish poetry, a Christmas play, and writings on folklore and the Celtic movement.

This book was produced in association with the Gorseth Kernow.

This product was added to our catalog on Tuesday 20 January, 2009.
