An edition, translation and study of the remaining unedited poems in the Book of Taliesin (National Library of Wales MS Peniarth 2). The ten poems survey the past successes and failures of the Welsh people and foretell their final victory. The commentaries discuss the textual difficulties and compare the poems’ language and diction with those of other poetry up to c. 1350. The General Introduction and the introductions to the individual poems investigate allusions and possible contexts between the tenth and the thirteenth centuries.
