Robert Williams Parry

Robert Williams Parry (1884 – 1956) was a Welsh poet who was greatly influenced by Romantic poets such as Keats. Two volumes of his poetry were published: Yr Haf a cherddi Eraill (1924) and Cerddi’r gaeaf  (1952). His breakthrough came when he won the Chair at the National Eisteddfod in 1910 with his poem ‘Yr Haf’ (‘The Summer’). This poem and ‘The Fox’ are probably his best-known.
