Title : Medieval Welsh Poems to Nuns [Among the poems of the "cywyddwyr" (medieval Welsh poets) is a sub-genre of erotic poems addressed to nuns; the speaker presents himself as a suitor while the nun takes the position of the disdainful courtly maiden. Although irreverent, these poems are not satirical and serve as genuine love songs. The five poems the author examines in this article are attributed to the fourteenth-century poet Dafydd Ap Gwilym, but the language and style of all but one of them point to a fifteenth-century composition date. The appendix transcribes these five poems in Welsh with English translations. Title note supplied by Feminae.].
