Overview

Drawing on myth, folklore and history, the stories of the "Mabinogion" passed from generations of storytellers before they were written down in the thirteenth century in the form we know. Set in dual realms of the forests and valleys of Wales and the shadowy otherworld, the tales are permeated by a dreamlike atmosphere. In "Math Son of Mathonwy" two brothers plot to carry off the virginal Goewin, while in "Manawydan Son of Llyr" a chieftain roams throughout Britain after a spell is cast over his land. And King Arthur's court provides the backdrop to tales such as "How Culhwch Won Olwen", in which a young man must complete many tasks before he can marry a giant's daughter.

This Nook edition is not what you are expecting. The Publisher, qasim idrees, is a Pakistani Computer software company. He/it has connected this Nook edition as being translated by Jeffrey Gantz. That is incorrect. This is in fact the Lady Charlotte Guest translation which is Public Domain. Please avoid this publisher as he/it seems to be scamming buyers and Barns & Noble with his fake publications. Rated 1 star because it requires it but it deserves NO STARS.
