Reviewing the Mabinogion texts within the pages of the Red and White Books, one is forced once again to register the extraordinary range of literature with which late medieval Welsh reader seems to have been acquainted – religious and secular works; translated texts and those of a more local pedigree; philosophical, elegaic and comical genres; items of historical record and more imaginative works which in modern terms would be understood as ‘fiction’. Such richness was of course entirely characteristic of Welsh letters from the Age of the Llywelyns, as we have seen. But the extraction of the Mabinogion texts from this dense thicket of medieval literature was the result of an editorial process that took place not in the medieval era itself but in the early nineteenth century, as part of an antiquarian project that culminated in the publication of the volumes by Lady Charlotte Guest between 1838 and 1849. Does it merely represent nothing more than an artificial assemblage based on the tastes and preoccupation of its Romantic nineteenth-century editors? Or are there certain inherent qualities which justify the consideration of these texts as a group, distinguishing them from those around them?
