ISBN 978 1 903427 58 3

’its contents are both of a high quality and immensely welcome’

Simon Parker Western Morning News 4 August 2011

> Read the full review of this book

Thus Es Et includes dialect writing from authors, playwrights, poets, storytellers, mimics, performers, and recorders from the late 18th century to the present day. The impressive list of contributors emphasises the importance of Cornish dialect and the need to preserve it for future generations.

And as well as being a literary anthology, Thus Es Et is a form of social history, describing the lives of Cornishmen at work and at play. The wide variety of genres and subject matter will delight the reader and the extensive glossary will be an important reference source.
