    Paperback Ù Mabinogion MOBI Ì mabinogion kindle, Mabinogion EpubI'm splitting the difference between my love of the medieval collection ie Y Mabinogi and other Welsh tales and Lady Charlotte Guest's sometimes bowdlerized romanticized nineteenth century and I mean that in the worst possible way translation which would garner at best two stars because I'm feeling generous The real advantage of this book is if you're interested in the history of how the Mabinogion has been treated in the English language; otherwise you should decide if you want a a literal translation in that

    Paperback Ù Mabinogion MOBI Ì mabinogion kindle, Mabinogion EpubThe Mabinogion is a collection of Welsh stories preserved in manuscripts from the fourteenth century but it's assumed that the stories are older than that they have been translated into English since the eighteenth century and this collection is in that traditionThe odd thing about collections like this is the need to drop any idea of an original version of the stories Stories are told and changed always in flux until they are caught between the pages of a book Then a version is set in ink the way that maybe one person told them in one place and at one time For instance some of the stories have digressions giving spurious reasons for the names of places It is easy to imagine a storyteller changing those as they went from place to place to set the

    Paperback Ù Mabinogion MOBI Ì mabinogion kindle, Mabinogion EpubI'm reading the Mabinogion after a childhood spent reading books that were based on these Welsh myths The Chronicles of Prydain The Dark is Rising The Owl Service I recall that those retellingsrecyclings were a bit user friendly but what I love about mythology is the concentrated nature of it These are oral traditions boiled down to their e

    Paperback Ù Mabinogion MOBI Ì mabinogion kindle, Mabinogion EpubI like mythological and I like medieval but this book is much than that There’s a dreaminess to these tales I find so surprising seductive and mysterious They intoxicate me with dream and weird my imagination in wonderful waysThat said it’s a very uneven book The first four “branches” are really where the sauce is The tales that follow mostly chivalric Arthurian adventures can be dry though interesting for predating any round tables or swanky grails I’ll make an exception for the tale of Cuhlwch whose mad crush on Olwen leads uncle Arthur into an epically misguided hunt for a divine boar which for some reason has a comb and a razor and a pair of sheers all caught in the tuft of hair between its ears The hunt is such an ordeal it kills off nearly

    Paperback Ù Mabinogion MOBI Ì mabinogion kindle, Mabinogion EpubThis is an excellent translation of the Mabinogion Unlike Gantz Davies uses familiar spellings of names which I like; unlike Jones and Jones she divides dialogue up into paragraphs a conversation can be pretty confusing when it's printed as a single paragraph Above all though Davies translates for oral performance they're wonderful stories to read aloud Occasionally when the action is getting intense Davies will switch to the present tense as the Welsh originals do It makes the narrative directThe tales themselves are wonderful It's a blend of Welsh legend mythology and Arthurian romanceWelsh names can be hard to pronounce but Davies provides an excellent pronunciation guide

    Paperback Ù Mabinogion MOBI Ì mabinogion kindle, Mabinogion EpubSupervisor wanted me to use a different translation to my old one the Everyman 1993 edition So I had to get this one It's supposed to be accurate I don't know about that but it does seem a bit immediate and colourful than the old Everyman edition The little I know suggests it is a good translation and it's certainly readable and has a full complement of explanatory notes introduction etc which is than I can say for the Everyman edition Slightly odd order of tales not su

    Paperback Ù Mabinogion MOBI Ì mabinogion kindle, Mabinogion EpubA wonderfully curious collection of old Welsh tales Not exactly literature not exactly folktales not exactly mythology Like folk tales and mythology it’s the expression of a collective mindset yet it’s also the product of individual now anonymous authors elaborating upon or distilling long existent oral tales than likely preserved across centuries by highly skilled bards The introduction refers to them as Wondertales actually an official subset of Folktales Sounds wonderful to me This collection dates in manuscript from the 14th century but speculation takes their origins back another 400 years or Suffice it to say that these are old stories with beginnings shrouded in obscurity They also happen to contain some of the very earliest elaborations of the Arth
