♥ Book Title : The Ring of the Nibelung
☯ Full Synopsis : "A superb new translation of one of the greatest nineteenth century poems: the libretto to Wagner's Ring cycle The scale and grandeur of Wagner's The Ring of the Nibelung has no precedent and no successor. It preoccupied Wagner for much of his adult life and revolutionized the nature of opera, the orchestra, the demands on singers and on the audience itself. The four operas-The Rhinegold, The Valkyrie, Siegfried and Twilight of the Gods - are complete worlds, conjuring up extraordinary mythological landscapes through sound as much as staging. Wagner wrote the entire libretto before embarking on the music. Discarding the grand choruses and bravura duets central to most operas, he used the largest musical forces in the context often of only a handful of singers on stage. The words were essential: he was telling a story and making an argument in a way that required absolute attention to what was said. The libretto for The Ring lies at the heart of nineteenth century culture. It is in itself a work of power and grandeur and it had an incalculable effect on European and specifically German culture. John Deathridge's superb new translation, with notes and a fascinating introduction, is essential for anyone who wishes to get to grips with one of the great musical experiences."Article| Richard Wagner| Statement ..."

☯ Full Synopsis : "The Nibelungenlied is the great epic of Germany, the medieval blossom of the Teutonic legends first recorded in the Icelandic Eddas and Sagas and which later bloomed as Wagner's Ring cycle and Tolkien's Lord of the Rings. It is the poem that Goethe credited with "awakening the 'inner memory' of the Germanic peoples," a cultural awakening that led to the first German unification in 1871. There is no better introduction to it for the English reader than Margaret Armour's beautifully illustrated prose translation."Article| no defined| Statement ..."

♥ Book Title : Richard Wagner and the Nibelungs
☯ Full Synopsis : "The four operas of Richard Wagner's epic opera cycle, the Ring, are among the greatest and most influential works in the genre. While their music has been the subject of lengthy discussion and analysis, there has hitherto been little scrutiny of their libretti, which Wagner wrote himself based on the German Nibelung sagas. This book reveals the resurgence of interest in saga and myth in Wagner's day, and, in establishing an authoritative bibliography of Wagner's Nibelung reading, shows how contemporary editors, scholars, and poets influenced the shape of Wagner's libretti. The resulting study sheds fascinating new light on these musical masterpieces."Article| Elizabeth Magee| Statement ..."

☯ Full Synopsis : "By placing the two phenomena next to each other and drawing on a variety of disciplines, Oergel (German, U. of Nottingham) demonstrates a parallel rise of interest in and interpretation of national identity in the two Germanic cultures. He looks at both the mythical and the national elements of national myth, and explores the new definitions of both Northern Germanic and the medieval. Focusing on Tennyson's Idylls of the King and Wagner's Ring des Nibelungen he questions assumptions about German particularity during the Victorian period. He also places the phenomena in a wider European context. Excerpts in German are translated in footnotes. Annotation copyrighted by Book News, Inc., Portland, OR"Article| Maike Oergel| Statement ..."
