Guto'r Glyn

Guto'r Glyn was a Welsh language poet and soldier of the era of the Beirdd yr Uchelwyr or Cywyddwyr, the itinerant professional poets of the Middle Ages. He is considered one of the greatest exponents, if not the greatest, of the tradition of "praise-poetry", verse addressed to a noble patron. Guto is associated with the Ceiriog Valley, in the modern Wrexham county borough of north-east Wales, many of his patrons lived in the same region, although he visited houses across Wales in the course of his journeys, his early life is obscure, but Glyn Ceiriog or Glyndyfrdwy have been suggested as his places of birth in the years between 1412 and 1420. It is possible that y Glyn refers to Valle Crucis Abbey, various suggestions and references within his poetry infer that he may have been a child adopted by and brought up at the abbey itself, explaining some of his association with Cistercian institutions: he was not from the noble or gentry class and may have come from a farming family. Guto is a diminutive of the Welsh name Gruffudd, his father's name was Siancyn, so he was christened Gruffudd ap Siancyn using the patronymic system of the time.

His poetic career seems to have blossomed early and he was a well-known poet by the early 1430s, while in 1441 he is known to have enlisted to fight in the Hundred Years War. From various of his poems we know that Guto was large and physically strong, recognised for his courage and sporting prowess, wore a beard and had black hair. Poets of the time traded humorous insults, the Hanmer poet Dafydd ap Edmund wrote that Guto was not good-looking and had a nose like a billhook, while another poet described him as having the alarming features of a bear, he was acknowledged as a master of praise poetry forms, an opinion echoed by the poet Tudur Aled, though he was skilled at satire and like most bards of the period could exhibit a sharp humour on occasion. Work as a drover led to an incident in which he lost the parson of Corwen's sheep, instigating a poetic controversy with his rival Tudur Penllyn. While Guto chides Penllyn, who worked as a drover and wool-merchant, for not assisting him and vows never to set foot in the Marches again, Penllyn responds by describing a fantastical end for Guto's flock and suggests that Guto has in fact stolen the sheep to give to his wool-combing wife in Oswestry, in the process including digs at Guto's baldness.

His finest and, to modern understanding, most powerful poems were written at the end of his long life and reflect on mortality, while he dismissed his earlier work as "babbling sweet nonsense continually". As a soldier, Guto fought on the Yorkist side during the Wars of the Roses, composed poems in praise of King Edward IV and prominent Yorkists such as William Herbert and Sir Roger Kynaston. Despite this, after the Battle of Bosworth he praised Welsh Lancastrian Rhys ap Thomas for killing Richard III, writing that he "killed the boar, shaved his head", he fought in France, was travelled by the standards of his time. He spent his last years as a lay guest near Llangollen. Ifor Williams, Gwaith Guto'r Glyn. Annotated edition of the poems, in Welsh. SourcesStephens, The new companion to the literature of Wales.
