In the Sir Thomas Parry-Williams Memorial Lecture for 2004 Ceri Davies discusses Parry-Williams’s connection with Latin and also draws attention to the links between twentieth-century Welsh literature and the Greek and Latin classics. He treats the subject under three headings: translations into Welsh of Greek and Latin classics; the way in which Welsh authors have made use of classical allusions in their own work; and the use some authors have made of classical myths and legends.
