Background and career
He changed his name from Michael Finch to Mihangel Morgan in his early twenties, taking his mother's maiden name. His work often reflects Welsh academia and the crisis of Welsh culture and many actual figures are easily recognised in some of his works. References to key moments in Welsh literature speckle his work; e.g. Dan Gadarn Goncrit is a reference to the 'Artist in Philistia' theme from a political Welsh poem about Saunders Lewis. Born in the village of Trecynon, near Aberdare in South Wales, he lectures in 20th century Welsh literature working for the Welsh Department at Aberystwyth University.
He is considered to be "one of Wales's leading Welsh language novelists"
He lives near the small village of Tal-y-bont, Ceredigion.
