RAYMOND WILLIAMS: FROM WALES TO THE WORLD

Edited by RWF Trustee Stephen Woodhams


Raymond Williams came from Wales, and was brought up in a working-class family...................

"that he went on to be a public intellectual connected to elite institutions, certainly breaks any mould that a child of his upbringing might be expected to fit to. Raymond Williams, in the terms set by some at least, simply did not add up. That he went on defying the assumptions of others, for instance at Cambridge where his presence was far from universally accepted, became almost a hallmark of the man. The secure base afforded by his childhood however made for a tough core even where outwardly he was never less than courteous."
