Ordinalia – The Cornish Mystery Play Cycle

Translation by Alan M Kent

Normal price £15

Paperback 292 pages
ISBN 978 1 903427 27 4

The book

Alan M. Kent is one of the leading Anglo-Cornish poets writing today and has accomplished a remarkable feat in translating the medieval Cornish-language cycle of mystery plays – The Beginning of the World, The Passion and The Resurrection – in their entirety into English. Whilst maintaining the richness and zest of the original Celtic imagining, Kent brings a strong contemporary feel to the work, making one of the high points of European literature accessible for the first time to actors and audiences as well as the general reader.

The editor

Alan M Kent was born in St Austell and grew up in the china clay mining region of mid-Cornwall. He is a poet, novelist and dramatist. In 1998 he was awarded a doctorate for his research into Cornish, Cornu-English and Anglo-Cornish literature.

Winner of the Holyer an Gof Adult Fiction, Poetry & Drama award of 2006 awarded by the Gorseth Kernow.

The Turn of the Ermine – a Bilingual Anthology of Breton Literature

Edited by Jacqueline Gibson and Gwyn Griffiths

Normal price £20

Paperback 506 pages
ISBN 978 1 903427 28 2

The book

This anthology aims to give an overall picture of Breton literature from the earliest traces in the Lais of Marie de France to the present day. The majority of the 150 stories, poems, legends and reminiscences are in Breton, with parallel translations into English. Also included are texts in English, and translations from Welsh, French and Latin. No anthology of Breton literature has been undertaken on this scale before. A truly groundbreaking book.
