Neighbours from Hell: English Attitudes to the Welsh - Mike Parker

Y Lolfa, 2007, Paperback ..
Condition: Very Good.

Reprint. [First: Same Year] From the cover: “From the Act of Union to Anne Robinson, Neighbours from He/I? looks at English attitudes to the Welsh. Drawing on the author’s experience of the comedy circuit, cartoons; the popular press and postcards; from Tours of the Picturesque to the novels of Niall Griffiths, the range of reference is as broad as the writing style is witty. Stereotypes explored include the Welsh character (shifty, oversexed or verbose); the Welsh language (dead, ugly or secret code for extremists), and the landscape. This is fine and funny polemic with a purpose, by the author of The Rough Guide to Wales.”
