Sioned Davies


Professor Davies is a leading authority on medieval prose tradition whose 2007 translation of The Mabinogion received wide-spread critical acclaim (“This fresh, energetic translation…. shows off The Mabinogion tales as what they were originally: splendid entertainment.” – Guardian).

She shares her insights into the great Welsh myth cycle in discussion with Hugh Lupton on the launch of his new novel; and in her talk on some of the themes in the Mabinogion 4th Branch as part of the Petals & Claws exhibition. 

“The Fourth Branch of the Mabinogi contains passages that give a tantalizing glimpse of a storyteller in action.”
