The Taliesin Tradition: A Quest for Welsh Identity 1st Edition Edition by Emyr Humphreys (Author)Author: Emyr Humphreys. "Taliesin" is the first of five books in "The Pendragon Cycle".

The Book of Taliesin Reference: Peniarth MS 2 The Book of Taliesin (Peniarth MS 2), dating from the first half of the fourteenth century, is one of the most famous Welsh manuscripts.

It does not appear to have been known by its present title until the seventeenth century. Taliesin, Chief Bard of Britain and Celtic shaman, was a historical figure who lived in Wales during the latter half of the sixth century.

His verse is established as a direct precursor to the Arthurian Legends--and Taliesin himself, is said to be Taliesin tradition book direct forebear to Merlin. The author presents completely new translations of Taliesin's major poems in their entirety, uncovering the meanings.

Taliesin is the remarkable adventure of Charis, the Atlantean princess who escaped the terrible devastation of her homeland, It was a time of legend, when the last shadows of the mighty Roman conqueror faded from the captured Isle of Britain.4/5.

According to legends that first appear in the Book of Taliesin, Taliesin's early patron was Elffin ap Gwyddno, son of Gwyddno Garanhir, who was a lord of a lost land in Cardigan Bay called Cantre'r Gwaelod.

Taliesin defended Elffin and satirised his enemy, the powerful Maelgwn Gwynedd, shortly before the latter died (probably in CE). Emyr Humphreys' "The Taliesin Tradition": Book Review My wife asked me if this was about Frank Lloyd Wright. Well, it is and isn't.

The Book of Taliesin contains a collection of some of the oldest poems in Welsh, many of them attributed to the poet Taliesin, who was active toward the end of the sixth century and sang the praises of Urien Rheged and his son Owain ab Urien.

Other poems reflect the kind of learning with which the poet became associated, deriving partly from Latin texts and partly from native Welsh tradition.

The Taliesin Tradition's generated and perpetuated "so large a body of myth," but for Humphreys this translates into "a living poetic tradition." () Not only consolation for the defeated, myth-making carries potency as a "weapon in the struggle for survival."5/5.
