The volume represents original archival research both in the textual edition of previously unpublished poetry and in the substantial critical introduction and notes to the texts. The critical introduction provides a new narrative of the distinctive shape that Crown loyalism took in Wales, and the specifically bardic frame that Welsh poets chose for their responses (whether politically radical or reactionary; whether for popular or elite consumption) to the French Revolution and the revolutionary controversy in Wales.
