    Taliesin, Chief Bard of Britain and Celtic shaman, was a historical figure who lived in Wales during the latter half of the sixth century. His verse is established as a direct precursor to the Arthurian Legends--and Taliesin himself, is said to be the direct forebear to Merlin. The author presents completely new translations of Taliesin's major poems in their entirety, uncovering the meanings. “Taliesin” is the first book in the “Pendragon Cycle” series, a historical fiction series that takes the Arthur legend and puts in some historical aspects into the story. We see both the fall of Atlantis, and Charis, a princess, as she travels with her family to Britain.

    In the final book of Susan Cooper’s Dark is Rising sequence, Taliesin appeared to aid the protagonists and serve as a guide; In Bernard Cornwell’s Warlord Chronicles, Taliesin was a bard and druid in service of Guinevere; Damh the Bard featured a song entitled “Ceridwen and Taliesin” on his album Antlered Crown and Standing Stone;Author: Gregory Wright. ONCE UPON A TIME, there lived a boy in Wales whose mother, Cardiwen, hoped to make him the wisest child in the land. A great magician herself, Cardiwen went to the fairies for their help, for they had always given her what she wanted.

    This was the first book to explore the shamanic background of the bardic traditions of Britain and Ireland. It covers the myth of Taliesin, translates some of his major poems and establishes the background and parallel myths that reveal the prophetic and oracular skills of the ancient poets who were once part of the ‘people of the gift.’.
