A great book for any fantasy/celtic mythology lover's shelf.,
This review is from: The Mabinogion (Voyager) (Hardcover)
A wonderful book. For any avid reader of celtic mythology, Tolkien or high fantasy, this would be a great addition to any collection. The translation from the original Welsh is beautifully executed and perfectly conjures up the mystical imagery of the Dark Age legends and stories. Not only this but Alan Lee has lent his extraordinary artistic skills to the book, adding stunning visuals to an already enchanting set of stories. This would be worth buying even if it were an art book on itself.
With the rising interest in fantasy and ancient mythology following the release of the film of Tolkien's Lord of the Rings, I think this would be a great source of information for those who are interested in the cultures and legends that influenced Tolkien himself.
