Críticas:

'Ranks with the best of 20th century works of fantasy' Publishers Weekly 'The Mabinogion is certainly among the top five fantasy series of the twentieth century' SFsite.com 'Not only the best fantasies of the twentieth century, but also great works of fiction.' Saturday Review 'Magnificently conceived - persuasive and powerful - The product of a keenly imaginative and well-disciplined mind' August Derleth

Reseña del editor:

The Mabinogion is to Welsh mythology what the Iliad and the Odyssey are to Greek myth. These classic, thrilling stories of magic, betrayal, lost love and bitter retribution constitute a powerful work of the imagination, comparable to Tolkien's Lord of the Rings. Evangeline Walton's compelling rendition includes the tale of Bran the Blessed and his family's epic struggle for the throne; the encounter between Prince Pwyll and Arawn (God of Death) which Pwyll survives by agreeing to kill the one man that Detah cannot fell. The Mabinogion is internationally recognized as the world's finest arc of Celtic mythology; Walton's retelling introduces an ancient world of gods and monsters, heroes, kings and quests, making accessible one of the greatest fantasy sagas of all time.
