VOICING THE VERSE : Y GERDD AR GÂN 5/35


Llywelyn ab y Moel (died 1440) was a Welsh language poet and rebel, and father of the poet Owain ap Llywelyn ab y Moel, who lived in Llanwnnog, north of Caersws, Powys.

He fought in the revolt of Owain Glyndŵr, and then lived as a rebel outlaw. His poetry contains attacks on the English, and descriptions of life as an outlaw.

Llywelyn is noted for his bardic debate between himself and Rhys Goch Eryri on the nature and origin of the poetic muse, or awen.
