The Mabinogion

Reissue


Sioned Davies

Oxford World's Classics Hardback Collection

  • The Mabinogion is a collection of eleven medieval Welsh tales, whose invention and fantastical interweaving of Celtic mythology and Arthurian romance have made it one of literature's greatest epics
  • Sioned Davies's magnificent translation is the first to place due emphasis on the tales' oral origins
  • The introduction places the tales within their storytelling context, and examines their central themes and the central role that public performance played in their evolution
  • Invaluable explanatory notes illuminate aspects of medieval Welsh society, highlighting the relationship between the tales and cross-referencing them in a way that has never been done before
  • Glossaries of personal names and place-names translate their meanings and identify locations. A map shows the locations of The Mabinogion
  • A pronunciation guide aids the pronunciation of Welsh names
