Poetry Wales 52.2
Ymhlith y toreth o gerddi sydd yn y rhifyn hwn, ceir dwy gerdd gan Sampurna Chattarji, bardd o Mumbái a chyfaill da iawn a ddaeth ar ymweliad i Aberystwyth ym mis Medi eleni. Ysbrydolwyd y gerdd gyntaf gan un o'r pethau gorau i'w gwneud yn Aber – yfed yn ei thafardai lu! – ac mae'r ail yn ymdrin ag un o leoliadau mwyaf eiconig y dref – glan y môr a'r harbwr. Dyna wych fod Aber wedi ysgogi cerddi newydd gan un o feirdd gorau India! Am gerdd gen i am ymweliad â dinas Sampurna, clicia fan hyn.
The latest issue of Poetry Wales has arrived, full of new poems and interesting articles, packed tight against the cold just in time for winter. It includes two articles that evaluate the Welsh-language poetry scene today. On the face of it, things have never been better, but all is not as it seems – or so say Llŷr Gwyn Lewis and Grug Muse. Short excerpts from both articles are shown above, provocative observations that chime with much that has been said in two issues of the Clera podcast for October and November. Introspection must be good for any scene from time to time.
The abundence of poems in the current issue include two by Sampurna Chattarji, a poet based in Mumbai and very good friend who visited Aberystwyth back in September. The first poem was inspired by a mini pub crawl from Scholars to Downies Vaults to the Llew Du – just the two of us drinking in abandoned bars out of season – and the second by a trip to Aber's iconic seafront and harbour.
