A sequence that contributes eloquently to the ongoing poetic debate about national identity in Wales by invoking the life of Saint Cadoc. Drawing upon the 11th century hagiography, The Life of Saint Cadoc these poems insinuate the saint's presence into modern Welsh landscapes and so interrogates how the presence of the past constructs a nearly hallucinatory sense of what it might mean to be Welsh.
