Welsh: Trafferth Mewn Tafarn - Dafydd Ap Gwilyms most famous poem
Dafydd ap Gwilym is one of wales’ most exciting poets. Although many centuries have passed since he travelled the country reciting his poems, his words still enchant us to this day. He is our most famous poet and debatably his most famous poem is “Trafferth Mewn Tafarn”.
In this poem Dafydd tells a story about him trying to love a girl one night. He encounters many problems along his journey through the darkness, this includes waking everyone up and waking three very angry Englishmen up.
But did you know that Dafydd was not actually in a ‘Pub’ and the story was far more serious?
This webinar will bring Dafydd’s words alive and allow us to hear is voice again, close to seven centuries after the poem was written.
