Hiraeth (pronounced Hir-eye-eth) is a Welsh word with no direct English translation. It is a longing for a home that is lost to us, or perhaps never was. A grief for the lost places of our past. In these times of deep change, the meaning of hiraeth calls to our essential connection to the land and our place within it.
This anthology of poetry, story and artwork gives flashes of form to this elusive concept. Featuring works from contributors all around the world, Hiraeth is an intimate and evocative array of works, suffused with dream, myth and memory.
