      The Book of Taliesin contains a collection of some of the oldest poems in Welsh, many of them attributed to the poet Taliesin, who was active toward the end of the sixth century and sang the praises of Urien Rheged and his son Owain ab Urien. Other poems reflect the kind of learning with which the poet became associated, deriving partly from Latin texts and partly from native Welsh tradition. Taliesin "of the shining brow" is a mytho-historical character generally associated with early Wales and North Western Britain in the 6 th century AD. He is a figure belonging to both history, as an important Old Welsh court poet, and to mythology, as a magician and seer in both Celtic and Arthurian legend.

      Deep Purple: A Retrospective Episode II: The Book of Taliesyn Early Deep Purple was always quick to write new albums, and gave life to their second output The Book of I, led for a great deal by the classically-trained Jon Lord, continues to write more of their own material, but still includes three covers in the album: Neil Diamond’s Kentucky Woman, The Beatles’ We Can /5. It was a time of legend, when the last shadows of the mighty Roman conqueror faded from the captured Isle of Britain. While across a vast sea, bloddy war shattered a peace that had flourished for two thousand years in the doomed kingdom of Atlantis. TALIESIN is the remarkable adventure of Charis, the Atlantean princess who escaped the terrible devastation of her homeland, and of the fabled 4/5(4).

      Taliesin is the first book of a series of outstanding historical fiction. The tale begins in Atlantis and continues through the reign of Arthur, King of Britain. Each . This story, when in context of the rest of the Red Book of Hergest, would take place around the end of the first century BCE; thus, we see a Taliesin active some five or six hundred years before the supposed days of Gwion, and it associates him with heroes from southern Wales, not necessarily northern Wales.
