Thought to have been first written down in the 12th century by an author who is still unknown, "The Nibelungenlied," translated from Middle High German as "The Song of the Nibelungs," is an epic German poem reflecting the oral tradition, heroic motifs, and actual events and individuals from the 5th and 6th centuries. This remarkable work begins with an assurance of both joy and sorrow, though ultimately tragedy reins in "The Nibelungenlied." The early chapters recount the young life of Siegfried, a great Netherlands prince, who slew a dragon and bathed in its blood while still young, giving him extraordinary strength. He goes on to meet the lovely princess Kriemhild, whose brother Gunther requires his help to marry the strong Icelandic Queen Brünhild in exchange for his sister's hand. All is well until Brünhild discovers the deception of Gunther and Siegfried, and her successful plot to murder the latter incites bloody revenge from Kriemhild. From the court of the Burgundians to the court of Etzel, from terrible deaths to hidden treasure, "The Nibelungenlied" is a masterful illumination of German antiquity and dramatic legend. Often and justly compared to "The Iliad" of the Greeks, this skillful epic poem has inspired artists throughout the centuries, most notably Richard Wagner in his opera cycle 'The Ring,' and will doubtlessly continue to inspire readers in the centuries to come.
Reviews about The Nibelungenlied (4):
The Nibelungenlied (try to say that in one breath) is an epic poem, written about A.D. 1200. As with the Iliad the translator makes the biggest impact; so, it may be necessary to read several translations to find the one that resonates.

In the Iliad homer chose a snippet of time of the war at Ilium. In the Nibelungenlied We get the highlight of the life of Kriemhild. It would not do the poem good to paraphrase or sum up Kriemhild's experiences.

People take the time to compare The Nibelungenlied to other great works; this can be interesting. However, you seldom see other works compared to this one.
I found the book with the entire story of this legend, with alll the details I wanted to Know about this fascinating
Much time is spent on those 'courtly' activities. really! How did a work this plodding get passed down for so many generations?
When I went away to college as a 17 year old, this is the book I took with me. Its timeless and quite modern at the same time. This edition is not fancy but be patient and tag along for a tense and dramatic adventure.
