Mabinogion Tetralogy
By

Rating
Evangeline Walton's "The Mabinogion Tetralogy" is one of the remarkable achievements of twentieth-century fantasy literature: a powerful work of the imagination, ranking with Tolkien's "Lord of the Rings" novels.

The author of the Mabinogion, the ancient tales based on medieval Welsh mythology and history, is unknown to us, but generations have thrilled to these magical adventures set at a time when men and gods mingled, and the gods had more than met their match. In the masterful hands of Evangeline Walton the twelve branches of the original legends were reworked into the four compelling narratives collected here: "The Prince of Annwn, The Children of Llyr, The Song of Rhiannon," and "The Island of the Mighty." It is Walton's triumph is to have constructed a vital and living world on the foundations of myth.
