Synopsis

A poem called the Gododdin was composed by Aneurin sometime around 600 AD, but the poem of that name preserved in a 13th century manuscript probably had a history of oral and scribal transmission, and will have undergone changes. Here, Koch establishes the historical context, investigates the process of the poem's transmission and restores the text to its original form. This tranlation of the "Book of Aneurin" differs from earlier presentations by providing a reconstructed text recovered through principles of textual criticism and historical linguistics. This procedure allows one to separate earlier material from later modifications. The author also provides substantial linguistic notes.
