Book excerpt: Then they took the flowers of the oak, and the flowers of the broom, and the flowers of the meadowsweet, and from those they conjured up the fairest and most beautiful maiden that anyone had ever seen. Celtic mythology, Arthurian romance, and an intriguing interpretation of British history — these are just some of the themes embraced by the anonymous authors of the eleven tales that make up the Welsh medieval masterpiece known as the Mabinogion. They tell of Gwydion the shape-shifter, who can create a woman out of flowers; of Math the magician whose feet must lie in the lap of a virgin; of hanging a pregnant mouse and hunting a magical boar. Dragons, witches, and giants live alongside kings and heroes, and quests of honour, revenge, and love are set against the backdrop of a country struggling to retain its independence. Sioned Davies' lively translation recreates the storytelling world of medieval Wales and re-invests the tales with the power of performance.

Book excerpt: The Mabinogion is the earliest prose literature of Britain and it contains Arthurian tales, Welsh romances and other Celtic legends and myths. The meaning Mabinogi is obscure, but it clearly roots in the word 'mab' for son, child, young person: this is to be seen in the naming convention 'son of' in genealogies. The tales are: The Lady of the Fountain Peredur the Son of Evrawc Geraint the son of Erbin Kilhwch and Olwen The dream of Rhonabwy Pwyll Prince of Dyved Branwen the daughter of Llyr Manawyddan the son of Llyr Math the son of Mathonwy The dream of Maxen Wledig The story of Lludd and Llevelys Taliesin

Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: HISTORIA: A Gateway to Ancient and Medieval History and Archaeology! This book introduces the reader to some of the literary traditions of the ancient Celts through the study of the first branch of The Mabinogion: Pwyll, Lord of Dyved. This ancient text is both a record of British mythology and a teaching text for ancient princes. It also illustrates the values of Celtic, Iron Age society that carried on into the Middle Ages to shape Arthurian Romance and ideals of chivalry and kingship. In this book, the reader will learn about the most prominent archetypes in ancient Celtic literature such as occurrences in threes, the importance of contact with the Otherworld, what it meant to be an effective ruler, and more. Pwyll, Lord of Dyved is a tale of magic and wonder, as well as human trial and experience, and the archetypes it employs are as relevant today as they were over fifteen-hundred years ago. If you are studying The Mabinogion, or have an interest in Celtic and Arthurian studies, the Arthurian legends and British mythology, then you will enjoy this short, engaging study of one of the great literary achievements of the ancient Celts.

Download The Mabinogi PDF by Charles William Sullivan Full Free and published by Psychology Press. This book was released on 1996 with total page 418 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: Culture in Practice collects the academic and political writings from the 1960sthrough the 1990s of anthropologist Marshall Sahlins. More than a compilation, Culture in Practiceunfolds as an intellectual autobiography. The book opens with Sahlins's early general studies ofculture, economy, and human nature. It then moves to his reportage and reflections on the war inVietnam and the antiwar movement, the event that most strongly affected his thinking about culturalspecificity. Finally, it offers his more historical and globally aware works on indigenous peoples,especially those of the Pacific islands.Sahlins exposes the cultural specificity of the West,developing a critical account of the distinctive ways that we act in and understand the world. Thebook includes a play/review of Robert Ardrey's sociobiology, essays on "native" consumption patternsof food and clothes in America and the West, explorations of how two thousand years of Westerncosmology affect our understanding of others, and ethnohistorical accounts of how cultural orders ofEuropeans and Pacific islanders structured the historical experiences of both. Throughout, Sahlinsoffers his own way of thinking about the anthropological project. To transcend critically our nativecategories in order to understand how other peoples have historically constructed their modes ofexistence--even now, in the era of globalization--is the great challenge of contemporaryanthropology.
