This inaugural issue is devoted to studies of Taliesin I. Designed and constructed in 1911 upon Wright’s return to Wisconsin from Europe, Taliesin I burned in August 1914. It thus became the most difficult Wright residence for Wright scholars to examine. In this volume’s critical essays, Neil Levine offers a view of the different layers of meaning of Taliesin I; Scott Gartner explains the legend of the Welsh bard Taliesin and its meaning for Wright; Anthony Alofsin considers the influence of the playwright Richard Hovey and the feminist Ellen Key on Wright’s and Cheney’s thought of the period; and Narciso G. Menocal suggests that the Gilmore and O’Shea houses in Madison, Wisconsin, are a collective antecedent to Taliesin I. To conclude the volume, Anthony Alofsin has written what amounts to a catalogue raisonné of the drawings and photographs of Taliesin I. Surprisingly, he finds no photographs of the living area and argues that those that have been published are in fact of Taliesin II.

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 behind these great works for the first time.

A magnificent tale which begins with the tragedy of Atlantis and the arrival in Britain of King Avallach. In this world, Celtic chieftains struggle for survival in the twilight of Rome's power, and one heroic figure towers over all, the Prince Taliesin, in whom is the sum of human greatness. This is a tale of a love that spawns the miracle of Merlin and Arthur and a destiny that is more than a kingdom.

Cornelia Brierly, one of the first apprentices to attend Frank Lloyd Wright's school of architecture, was a working colleague of the master architect; during the last thirty years of his career, she made important design contributions to many of his building projects. This lavishly illustrated memoir, complete with fascinating historical photographs, tells the story of nearly seventy years spent with the Taliesin Fellowship. It is an important work, not only because of the author's closeness to the twentieth century's foremost architect but because she has observed first hand the unfolding of organic architecture -- Wright's design precepts made manifest. In an affectionate, honest, and perceptive book, she celebrates the fellowship as a way of life and brings to life a vibrant community that is still going strong, forty years after Wright's death.

Taliesin Long before Tony and Zac joined Galpol, Camp Bellidon was an idea floating around the lofty offices of the Galpol Supreme Council. Neutronite didn't exist in large quantities, and there were no hyper-doors. Galpol was happy to go about the business of policing the Galaxy as it had done for thousands of years, but as their influence expanded, so did their need for officers and man-power. It became necessary to recruit students. Gradually, these became younger as training demands became more rigorous. Of course, cadets were secondary school students - not to be used in operational work. Well, that was the idea, but it was strange how police cases began to intrude into their studies. They began to practise real police work. Sometimes the kids could do things the senior officers couldn't - such as go undercover to deal with youth problems. For instance, there was this kid who knew how to make neutronite - a strange stuff that generated dark energy. Everything would have been fine if the Ganglions hadn't captured him and his father. Even Galpol knew that combining Ganglions and Neutronite was not a good recipe for peace in the cosmos. Things became even more convoluted when the Ganglions fell out with each other, and a radical faction siezed control of their kingdom. Suddenly, Galpol had to rescue Ganglia's royal family. Could they ever become allies? About the Author Geoff was born in Jersey, then under German occupation, during World War II. Soon after the war, his family moved to Brisbane, Australia. He was educated at All Souls' School, Charters Towers - a rather traditional boarding school after the English style. What knowledge one didn't learn through the ears was well and truly belted in through the rear end, complete with blood blisters. His first contact with the cane was for not running around a sports oval fast enough. He now prides himself on a complete disinterest on sports and knows nothing about cricket. This led to his creative and artistic sides developing. He had a way with words, and was a skilled debater.
