translated by Daniel B. Shumway
The adventures of Siegfried and Kriemhild in the most famous Germanic epic that has inspired Wagner and many others. A real classic work based on the ancient mythology and folklore of the Teutonic people...
“There is probably no poem of German literature that has excited such universal interest, or that has been so much studied and discussed, as the 'Nibelungenlied'. In its present form it is a product of the age of chivalry, but it reaches back to the earliest epochs of German antiquity, and embraces not only the pageantry of courtly chivalry, but also traits of ancient Germanic folklore and probably of Teutonic mythology.”
