The world’s best English epic and narrative poetry includes the Nibelungenlied (in English Translation). In this fantastic epic, Seigfried’s exploits and loves are recounted: how he defeats the powerful dragon and gains possession of an immense gold-hoard, his prowess in battle as he wins himself a kingdom, his shameful betrayal and death by the hand of a relative; and his wife’s Kriemhild’s bloody revenge.
- Is Odin – and his Valkyrie – to remain the implacable nemesis of Seigfried and his line – or will the bloody sword be finally sheathed?
- Can Kriemhild’s lust for vengance be sated with the deaths of her first husband’s murderers?-Or will she transcend all bounds of humanity by exterminating an entire people with the sword’s edge?
