Description

The four stories which make up the "Mabinogi" along with three additional tales from the same tradition form this collection and comprise the core of the ancient Welsh mythological cycle. Included are only those stories that have remained unadulterated by the influence of the French Arthurian romances, providing a rare, authentic selection of the finest works in medieval Celtic literature. In this first thoroughly revised edition and translation since Lady Charlotte Guest's famous "Mabinogion" in 1849, Patrick Ford has presented a scholarly document in readable, modern English, a literary achievement of the highest order.
