Read full description of the books:



The poems of Taliesin are among the most important and excellent of early Welsh verse. This is an exceedingly fine, well-researched edition, with delightfully copious, detailed, and highly informative notes.

The presentation of the text may prove challenging: the meanings of some (but not all) of the words are not given in the glossary, but rather incorporated into the extensive textual notes, meaning that a fair degree of careful reading may be be required in order to ascertain the mere meaning of a word (and occasionally multiple interpretations of words or phrases may be offered).

This presentation is such that the edition is most accessible to scholars already learned in Middle Welsh, and not easily approachable by the newcomer to the langauge; but the edition is _not_ only for specialists. For the student who (like myself) is not an expert and yet has gained some familiarity and experience with Middle Welsh already, the text proves to be accessible but challenging. (In other words, for the student in this "middle" position, the text is by all means usable, albeit it may prove simply more time-consuming than other editions of MW texts.) In the end, the "challenge" is, honestly, probably good for such a student. Using this edition was an exercise for me, in improving my understanding of and maneuverability with the grammar of MW, and challenging me to think hard about some difficult poetry.

The multiple interpretations offered are a virtue of the editor's, not a fault; the lack of a _full_, separate glossary is my one criticism of the book, because so many of the words' meanings are embedded only in the scholarly notes, but nevertheless: the notes _need_ and _ought_ to be read in any event.
