Harri Webb (1920-1994) was one of the most popular poets in Wales and a plangent cultural commentator. He wrote extensively on literary and political subjects over three decades, in the Western Mail and several magazines. Writing from the political left, Webb was impatient with the Welsh Establishment and the London Welsh. The hallmark of his essays and reviews was a pungent style designed to provoke. Deflated by the 1979 Devolution vote, he despaired that the changes he sought would ever be made and endured a period of silence.
