Abstract

[This is an experimental volume of creative criticism, which offers a fresh look at the short fiction of the famous writer Mihangel Morgan (1955-). This is the first extended study of his work, and particular attention will be given to the eight volumes of short fiction he published between 1992 and 2017 - a period during which significant developments in the field of Welsh prose were seen. Topics such as short story form, realism, modernity and postmodernism are addressed, and by placing Mihangel Morgan's work at the center of the study offers a broader view of the development and acceptance of Welsh postmodern short fiction and its significance to our literary culture. Experiment here for the first time in Welsh and literary criticism in the form of academic fiction in order to explore the presumed boundary between 'fact' and 'fiction'. The adventures of fictional character Dr Mari Non in her university post are followed by discussion of pieces of Mihangel Morgan's short fiction, opening the door to new interpretations of the author's work.]
