Summary :

Composed nearly eight hundred years ago by an unnamed poet, The Nibelungenlied is the principal literary expression of those heroic legends of which Richard Wagner made such free use in The Ring. This great German epic poem of murder and revenge recounts with peculiar strength and directness the progress of Siegfried's love for the peerless Kriemhild, the wedding of Gunther and Brunhild, the quarrel between the two queens, Hagen's treacherous murder of Siegfried, and Kriemhild's eventual revenge.
