Format: Paperback
Excellent book- a real insight into the minds of the warrior Welshmen of the time of Arthur. The earliest British poem as well!

5.0 out of 5 stars Gold Standard 30 Nov. 2013
By Flint F. Johnson - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
As an academic book it is still the gold standard of British poetry. Jackson did his best to reconstruct the poem's two extant versions, its history and context using his not inconsiderable skills as a linguist, manuscript expert, and historian. Yup, it is dry reading. Painfully so if one is not already familiar with the materials (the notes are his in-depth analyses and explanations for his language. On the other hand, it is an excellent piece of scholarly work still useful forty years after publication. Very few academic pieces can claim that.
