The Young Bull
Publisher: Red Door Consulting
Arthur Geraint Goodwin (1903 – 1941) was a Welsh novelist and short story writer. Although Goodwin died at the age of 38 of tuberculosis, the works he has left to posterity remain full of life, fresh and vigorous. "The Young Bull" is the story of a farmer on the Welsh border who is trapped in a hostile and combative marriage which is nonetheless charged with suppressed sexual tension. An episode where he is forced to do battle with his enraged bull and his wife steps into the fray to help serves both as an allegory of his marriage and the catalyst to breaking the barrier between the couple.
