Details

Bydd Elizabeth Siberry, cyd-olygydd Henry Vaughan and the Usk Valley a gyhoeddwyd yn 2016, yn siarad am fywyd a gwaith y bardd o’r ail ganrif ar bymtheg, a aned yn Nyffryn Wysg ac a dreuliodd ran fwyaf ei fywyd yno cyn marw yno.
Roedd yn cael ei adnabod fel Alarch Wysg, ac erbyn hyn mae ei fedd yn Eglwys Llansantffraid yn gyrchfan i bererindodau llenyddol. Ni chofiwyd yn dda amdano yn ei sir ei hun nac yng Nghymru ar bob adeg, ond fe fydd Elizabeth yn trafod
yr enw a oedd ganddo’n ddiweddarach, gan dynnu ar ffynonellau o gasgliad helaeth y Llyfrgell Genedlaethol.


Elizabeth Siberry, co-editor of Henry Vaughan and the Usk Valley published in 2016, will talk about the life and work of the seventeenth-century poet, who was born, lived most of his life and died in the Usk Valley.
He was known as The Swan of Usk, and his grave, at Llansantffraed church, is now a site of literary pilgrimage. He has not always been well remembered in his own county or in Wales, but Elizabeth will discuss his later reputation,
drawing on sources from the National Library’s extensive collection.
