Having heard about this great loss, the family of this individual is passing through pains, mourning the unexpected passing of their beloved.

Emyr Humphreys was a fine writer and tireless advocate for Welsh culture. He was always supportive and generous to younger writers.
His work interrogated the human condition.
Having just heard the news of his passing, age 101, we would like to offer our condolences to his family at this sad time.

It is with great sadness that we hear of the passing of Emyr Humphreys, one of the greatest literary talents of the twentieth century in Wales and beyond. We had the honour of publishing his works for many years. Our thoughts are with his family and loved ones.

Camp #EmyrHumphreys was to portray the diversity and internal tensions of the Welsh-speaking world through the medium of English. He was a bridgeman. A cultural nationalist in its broadest sense. Respects the distinctiveness of Wales and places it in an international context. Peace to his ashes.

With great sadness we remember one of Wales’ literary greats – author and poet Emyr Humphreys.

Our deepest condolences to his family.

#EmyrHumphreys portrayed the internal diversity + tensions of Welsh language society through the medium of English. He had to build the context of his stories for readers outside the culture. In this act of bridging he created a cultural base for a Welsh nation. Heddwch i’w lwch

News emerging that Emyr Humphreys has died, aged 101. In my opinion, Wales’s most important novelist. Thanks to my old teacher @Bookmac4 for leading us to A Toy Epic as a bunch of snot-nosed A-Level students where I even got to interview Humphreys when I was 16.


It is sad to note the death of Emyr Humphreys, a distinguished writer and campaigner of conviction. He was in prison with the Channel campaign in the seventies, and continued to support the Society, making a financial contribution as recently as his hundredth birthday. All condolences to his family.

We are still working on getting more details about the death, as a family statement on the death is yet to be released.
