Description

Ceinwen was in my mind, and I kept her there as men keep libraries of rare books, seldom to be touched but happy to know you have got. Along the way, almost everything about his humble life is altered, through strikes, schooling, marriage, betrayal, passion, death, and even boxing. Her sister in law was delightful but sadly had no money of her own after Iestyn deserted them and went to South Africa.

The Angharad storyline further emphasises the oppressive interest of townspeople in the private affairs of their fellows.The old world began to recede and Huw’s environment changed with the passage of time and the loss of people he grew up with.

Stanley Baker and Sian Phillips were Mr,Mrs Morgan,who had a loving and richly warm family life in the coal mining valley. That simple, measured, and certain way Huw has of narrating his story sort of swallowed me from page one. It’s an incredible thing to be able to characterise people in such a way that their personality shines through ahead of their physical attributes.It revolves around a family and their lives in all their complexity and their amazing simplicity, set in a Welsh coal mining village (which was a unusual setting for me). The coming-of-age narrator, Huw, so well paints a picture of his everyday struggles in a rapidly-industrialized Wales that you can literally hear the birds and smell the blackberry pie. Robinson Crusoe ile birlikte tahıl yetiştirmiş, Bereketli Topraklar'da bir barakanın yükselişine heyecanlanmıştım. I think I must have fallen in love with Bronwen even then and I must have been in love with her all my life since. It seemed odd that the book began with the main character leaving the valley, yet as the story of his childhood and coming of age unfolds, you never get to the point where he came to the decision to leave the valley.
