Titel: The Mabinogion
Verlag: Everyman Library, London
Über diesen Titel
Destiny, magic and chance, human strengths and weaknesses–The Mabinogion's stories are among the most compelling and beautiful in European literature.
Compsed in the golden age of Celtic story–telling in the eleventh century or earlier, they bring together the grotesque and the warmly human, the entertaining and the richly significant. Culhwch is here, perilously wooing the Giant's Daughter; Owain is here, winning the Lady of the fountain by Knightly feats of arms;and –a portent and a miracle both –King Arther is here for the first time as a prime mover in a significant prose narrative ('Culhwch and Olwen'), and thereafter as King and Emperor of what is still the world's most famous royal court.
'A magnificent acheivment...It is hard to think that in scholarship or as a piece of English prose the present translation will ever be bettered'–Sir Idris Bell, The Welsh Review
'Magisterial ...the authoritative translation, notable for its meticulous scholarship and a fine literary style'
Oxford Companion to the Literature of Wales
Founded in 1906 by J.M. Dent, the Everyman Library has always tried to make the best books ever written available to the greatest number of people at the lowest possible price. Unique editorial features that help Everyman Paperback Classics stand out from the crowd include: a leading scholar or literary critic's introduction to the text, a biography of the author, a chronology of her or his life and times, a historical selection of criticism, and a concise plot summary. All books published since 1993 have also been completely restyled: all type has been reset, to offer a clarity and ease of reading unique among editions of the classics; a vibrant, full-color cover design now complements these great texts with beautiful contemporary works of art. But the best feature must be Everyman's uniquely low price. Each Everyman title offers these extensive materials at a price that competes with the most inexpensive editions on the market-but Everyman Paperbacks have durable binding, quality paper, and the highest editorial and scholarly standards.
