New Stories from the Mabinogion

Review of two novels relating portions of The Mabinogion

Evangeline Walton did a four book series the retold the four principle parts of the Mabinogion, but did so entirely within the mythological milieu.  Some of these modern adaptations work quite well, while others seem to be a bit creaky or clunky.  In general, I think people have lost both the sense and the power of the mythological and are not particular adept at handling it.
