Great Norse, Celtic and Teutonic Legends
This captivating collection of legends and romances encompasses the principal hero-lays of the great epic cycles of the Teutonic Middle Ages. Its timeless tales of love and war include the stories behind many great works of art and literature: the Amelungs, the ancient forebears of the heroic Dietrich and his bride, Hildebrand; the Hegeling and Nibelung legends, on which Wagner based his Ring cycle; the saga of Beowulf; the legends of the Knights of the Round Table; and the Rhine legend of Lohengrin, the source of the epic Parzival and Wagner's well-known opera. Related in an accessible style, these inspiring legends offer compelling reading, both in and out of the classroom. Unabridged republication of the classic 1907 edition.
