Enhance your purchase
Frequently bought together
Recommended for libraries that support strong folk studies collections.-- "Katherine Kaigler-Koenig, Library Journal, September 1, 2002"
The Mabinogion is one of the great treasure troves of our Western spiritual heritage, but to truly appreciate and learn from it we need a guide who can elucidate not only its mythology, context, and history, but also its spiritual depths. Caitlín Matthews expertly leads us into the heart of these Mysteries.-- "Philip Carr-Gomm, Chief of the Order of Bards, Ovates, and Druids and author of Druidcraft and Druid"

As an example, her "own new translation" of Preiddeu Annwn is driven less by the actual Welsh text than the author's wishful thinking. Her subsequent derivation and/or reconstruction of a system of spiritual development based upon this, while deft and highly attractive from an esoteric point of view, has little to do with the original.
If you love the Mabinogion, and want to broaden the impact it has on you, then Ms Matthews' book is highly recommended. If you are a serious student of Middle Welsh, then I would avoid buying it as you will just get cross.
Think of this book as in the same vein as Graves' "The White Goddess": read it using your heart, not your head, and enjoy it as a development of the story. But no more than that...
