The Mabinogion - 40 credits (CYD732)

This module examines the corpus of eleven medieval Welsh prose tales known as the Mabinogion, and places them in their historical, social and cultural contexts. The interface between orality, aurality and literacy will be explored, and questions raised regarding the performance aspects of these texts, together with the role of the story-teller in medieval Welsh society.
