Lady Charlotte Elizabeth Guest (née Bertie; 19 May 1812 – 15 January 1895), later Lady Charlotte Schreiber, was an English aristocrat who is best known as the first publisher in modern print format of The Mabinogion which is the earliest prose literature of Britain. Guest established The Mabinogion as a source literature of Europe, claiming this recognition among literati in the context of contemporary passions for the Chivalric romance of King Arthur and the Gothic movement.

Alan Lee was born in Middlesex in 1947. His illustrated books include Faeries (with Brian Froud), Castles and Merlin Dreams, and has worked on such prestigious films as Erik the Viking (Terry Gilliam), Legend (Ridley Scott), and the acclaimed NBC miniseries Merlin. He is best known however for his work on the book and film versions of The Lord of the Rings and The Hobbit.

Lady Charlotte Guest. I can't say yea or nay about how Lady Charlotte Guest did with the source materials of the book, but I have to say that it's pretty entertaining. It chronicles various tales from Wales, going back to ancient legends about heroes and gods, and then forward in time to recognizable elements such as King Arthur.

Alan Lee, Lady Charlotte Guest. Before The Lord of the Rings there was THE MABINOGION

Alan Lee, Lady Charlotte Guest. Before The Lord of the Rings there was THE MABINOGION. Widely recognized as the finest arc of Celtic mythology, the eleven stories were preserved in two Welsh collections, The White Book of Rhydderch (. 300-1325) and The Red Book of Hergest (1375-1425), though the stories themselves hail from an oral tradition dating back to the tenth century

If you're interested in the illustrations from Alan Lee, the paperback version does not have them. The description of this version lists Alan Lee as one of the authors (which he is not). It would have been helpful to have known the difference (however cheap the paperback is.)

The Mabinogion is the oldest collection of telling of King Arthur and as such is empowered with certain authority and words of command that are the root source of legend. The translator has a deep understanding and respect for the substance of these stories and their meaning in the history of the English language and the people of those Isles. The story of Taliesin should be required reading for anyone who speak English as their first language. It should be sung by anyone who recognizes the power of the Bards.

My hardback copy of _The Mabinogion_ by Lady Charlotte Guest not only included Lady Guest's superior translation in its full, unabridged form with copious notes & the breathtaking art of Alan Lee, but also all of the black & white illustrations from the original 1877 edition. It was categorized as "Like New" & this copy looks like no one's even breathed on it. The dust jacket was included & completely intact with no tears or creases, text had absolutely no markings whatsoever, & binding was so tight & fresh that I don't think anyone's even opened it before. It even had that "new book" smell.

A competant enough translation, not the best or the worst that is out there. I can't say yea or nay about how Lady Charlotte Guest did with the source materials of the book, but I have to say that it's pretty entertaining.
It chronicles various tales from Wales, going back to ancient legends about heroes and gods, and then forward in time to recognizable elements such as King Arthur. Since this is a Dover thrift book (one of the pricier ones, since it's longer) the quality is so-so; the cover artwork is better than most of the thrift books, and the paper is only a little better than newpaper-quality.
In terms of readability, however, Guest's Mabinogion does not win any prizes. The translated sentences really could use a little tweaking, and often dialogue between several people is crammed together into one long paragraph. This is not only distracting, but hard to read.
Overall, it is fairly nice but needs an editor to tweak it in places. Fans of fantasy as well as mythology may want to check this out, especially if they are fans of the Prydain or Lost Years of Merlin series. For more readable Celtic myths, try Ella Young's "Celtic Wonder Tales."

Still the most accurate translation of the complete works in the White Book of Rhydderch and Red Book of Hergest. Some archaisms but very readable. Excellent introduction and good notes.

One can almost hear the wood snap and crackle in the fire, smell the thick, stout, foamy beer, and ease back into a chair as the words of the Bard, the 6th century equivalent of a multi-million selling musician and actor, echo the timeless tales of Pwyll, Peredur, and the timeless, Rhiannon. While I have not yet had the privilege to read the other translations, I have read the works of Geoffrey of Monmouth, Chretien de Troyes, Wolfram Von Eschenbach, and others. The Mabinogion pulled me in, as I felt accompanied by Geraint into the Otherworld. The concept of the Otherworld, the ties of the king and heroes to the land, and the exceeding magic of it all trumps the chivalry from the European mainland. For me, this was pure, unadulterated Arthurian lore without the pomp and circumstance of lords and ladies. Perhaps that is why the Welsh/Celts themselves moved as far from the rest of their European brothers as possible, to the very west of England. Unabashedly, I've had a lifelong fascination with Arthur. Personally, I've become disabled and have pursued this fascination to drown out the pain of daily life. Perhaps Providence has helped with my selection of reading for I am truly glad to have read this and the above works before tackling the work of Mallory. Anyone with an interest in Celtic studies, their Breton/Welsh ancestry, or even fans of fantasy, high fantasy, or Tolkien would benefit from the rich oral tradition which afforded us the gift of the collected tales found within The Mabinogion.
