Welsh-aid

Jeff, your go-to guy on all things Charlemagne, broadens out with this one-stop shopping guide to all things Welsh, including links on learning the language and getting a copy of The Mabinogion. All I can add is a plug for Evangeline Walton’s four outstanding Mabinogion-derived  novels, two of which — The Children of Llyr and The Song of Rhiannon — are overlooked classics of fantasy literature. Whatever uglies might be laid at Lin Carter’s door, his sponsorship of Walton’s late-career renaissance through the Ballantine Adult Fantasy Series ensures his place in heaven.

    Thanks for this! I’ll pass along this info to my students. I’m very curious to see what they think of this Welsh material; it’s probably the weirdest stuff they’ll read as English majors…
