The Misfortunes of Elphin

The Misfortunes of Elphin is the fifth novel by Thomas Love Peacock, published in 1829.[1] It is set in a somewhat historically-fanciful Arthurian Britain which incorporates many Welsh legends, but avoids all supernatural and mystical elements. Seithenyn appears as a major character.
