‘The Mabinogion’ is a collection of tales that comprise the earliest British prose stories, which were compiled in Middle Welsh in the 12th to 13th centuries from earlier oral traditions. Based on mythology, folklore and heroic legends of King Arthur and his knights, the tales provide intriguing examples of the transmission of Celtic, Norman and French traditions in early romance. The finest of the tales are the four related stories known as the ‘Four Branches of the Mabinogi’, featuring stories of widely different types, offering drama, philosophy, romance, tragedy, fantasy and humour. This comprehensive eBook presents the complete translation of ‘The Mabinogion’, with illustrations, footnotes and informative introductions. (Version 1)
