I am glad you suggested this Dowrgi, I actually own the Oxford World Classics edition of the Mabinogion it is sitting on my desk right next to me right now. I have read this, it was quite interesting. I was surprised that the tale of Cerridwen and Taliesin was not in it, but that is in The Poem Of Taliesin and not in here. I enjoyed reading the minor Arthurian tales, they are different from the stories that most of us know. I noticed an occasional mention of God in some of the stories, sometimes a character will swear in his name I am guessing that this is some kind of Christian influence which has crept in during translation. Arthur as I recall does not play a really major part here though.
