This is the second I've read of Walton's retellings of the Mabinogion. This isn't as artfully composed as the first she wrote, The Island of the Mighty. In that story, her politics seemed to flow naturally, but here they only reminded me of the contrast between the way the Celts treated women and the way we romantics would like to imagine they did. But, Walton fleshes out Pwyll's journey through the underworld with haunting images that help move the story into nearly a bildungsroman and deepen its romance. ( )

A lyrical, earthy retelling of the Mabinogion (medieval Welsh tale). I was surprised to find I liked the hero of the story--medieval heroes are generally either terribly stupid or complete prigs, and Pwyll is not bright but brighter than many of his countrymen. This, the first part of Walton's four-part retelling, seems mostly concerned with the transition between the old, pagan ways and Christianity, which is to come. I wish the oracles and gods had spent a little less time fortelling what would happen in the twentieth century (pollution, we don't respect the Mother Earth, we fly and harness lightning), but it's overall a good, fast read of an ancient myth.

I view this as a redaction rather than a translation of the first Branch of the Mabinogion. It is readable and deals with the mythic question of death, as a theme. Well worth the reading but don't use it as a scholarly text regarding the Mabiogion, the professionals will never take you seriously. I've read it twice, the last time in 2008. ( )

This is Walton's somewhat modernized version of the first branch of the Mabinogion, the Welsh mythology. It primarily describes the adventures of Pwyll, prince of Dyved, who becomes a brother of our world's Gray Man (Arawn, or Death) and returns to serve as king. After a couple of years of his kingship, Dyved has a bad year, and Pwyll is blamed because he has not taken a wife and started a family. He must spend a night on the haunted hill that has arisen over the barrow of Dyved's first king. There he has a vision and pursues a wife from another realm.

Walton's language is a mix of modern and older styles, and the going is pretty easy. Pwyll is shown having several epiphanies, but we do not see him really change as a character. He remains the mythic hero who sees feats of arms as his worthiest endeavors. The series could possibly serve as an introduction to the Mabinogion's stories for those who are not familiar with them and do not want to read the original. I didn't find this version captured my interest other than to see how she dealt with the material. ( )

That day Pwyll, Prince of Dyved, who thought he was going out to hunt, was in reality going out to be hunted, and by no beast or man of earth.
