    The Song of Rhiannon, a retelling of the Third Branch of the Mabinogion, isn t as powerful as The Children of Llyr, which is a relief, in a way There s a time of healing for the characters, as well as what they suffer during the action of the story, and there s a happy end for them as well It continues to follow the c

    In this installment, fae forces cast an enchantment on the land of Dyved, making it desolate except for Rhiannon, her son Pryderi, and both of their mates They wander other lands, their success at whatever they undertake resulting in jealousy and reprisal from others Shenanigans continue to ensue until the fae get what they

    Excellent Although she continues to romanticize the pagan past which is, by definition, unrealistic I love these books Walton retells the stories of the Mabinogion with grace, respect, and great beauty Although she is definitely a modern writer, with a modern writer s concern for psychology and detail, her books never make me feel

    A thoughtful and accomplished retelling from Walton, continuing her interpretation of the Mabinogion I m not hugely familiar with Welsh mythology though I have a vague and excessively superficial understanding of the main players, but one doesn t need prior knowledge to understand what s going on here A young and well meaning king makes a

    3.5 stars.Also, the 70s covers for this are hilarious The Song of Rhiannon 1972 , the third volume in Evangeline Walton s Mabinogion Tetralogy, begins with Manawyddan, son of the sea god, haunted by grief and feeling directionless after the events of The Children of Llyr I haven t read The Children of Llyr, but I have read B

    The 2 stars missing from my rating represent whatever is lost in the translation from the original script, coupled with my lack of heredity, not having the depth of experience growing up with these tales in my youth I feel certain that these elements are essential in understanding how this seemingly mundane story could survive through the years the way

    I was an English teacher in China when I was reading this book and I remember feeling a little self conscious about taking it out of my bag to read in class while I showed the students American movies.See, the cover is a bit suggestive The story is flat and not at all interesting in my opinion but students couldn t see that.Maybe some of those students though

    Even better than I remember it Less epic than Children of Llyr, but the magic, as in the chapter where all of Dyved vanishes overnight, is unutterably eerie And her descriptions of the land make me feel it would be wonderful to live in a pre industrial agragrian society, and I know perfectly well I d hate it The story comes from the Third Branch of the Welsh Mabinog

    I couldn t get into this one as much as The Children of Llyr The characters just kind of mope around for most of the book Also, I wasn t sure if I were reading The Song of Rhiannon or The Song of the Rhiannon the editor I use that term loosely didn t seem to know either Still marveling at the sheer number of mistakes in this omnibus edition.

    Despite the title, Rhiannon is a secondary character in this story Ultimately, it is her life that shaped the plot, and her power that changed it at the end, but the point of view throughout belongs largely to Manawyddan, last son of Llyr and rightful High King His adventures in this branch of the Mabinogion are varied, and prove both his skills and inner nobility.
