    Das NibelungenliedBy Anonymus Translated from Mittelhochdeutsch by Karl Simrock in 1827Existing historical locations and recordings of living persons at the time, determine the period of creation of this epic poem to between 1202 and 1204.It is the German counterpart to the Anglo Saxon sagas of King Arthur and his knights and Chretien of Troie s Lancelot tales.The geographical locations of the events stretch from Worms, the country on the river Rhine, to a northern Iceland, the castle of Brunehilde and later further south and east to Bavaria, Austria, Vienna and possibly to Bohemia or Hungary to the castle of King Etzel.Medieval chivalry is the background to the story of love and revenge between Siegfried the white knight in shining armour and Krimhilde the beautiful and faultless princess.Fairytale features light up the story with Siegrieds battle and slaying of a dragon, covering his body with the dragon s blood, almost gaining invulnerability to any future battle wounds.Nibelungenland is Siegfried s fairytale kingdom, the location of which is hard to guess Siegfried holds there an immense treasure of gold and silver, diamonds and jewellery as well as mysterious invisibility cap which he uses on several occasions and not always to his advantage.Inevitably the story also tells of the powerful dark villain knight Hagen, who causes endless sorrows, bloodshed and countless deaths with his t...

    How bad do you want your epics to be Do you want someone to hit someone else so hard that the plains shake and gouts of red fire shoot from the impact How about someone throwing a boulder 20 fathoms and then leaping just as far And, if you don t, what s wrong with you This book epic lay is amazingly over the top, and at the same time is one of the greatest examples of medieval literature that h...

    Massacre upon Massacre3 August 2016 Dusseldorf Well, maybe it isn t the case that the entire book is about people being slaughtered, but when you reach the end it certainly feels like it, with the last quarter of the story involving a huge revenge slaughter in the Hungarian king s home In fact it appears as if, with the exception of a couple of people, nobody actually comes out of this story on top and the thing is that other than being a bit of a pompous git, Siegfried didn t do anything wrong, and while revenge against his murderers may not be the best response, Kreimhild was entirely justified in a certain sense to seek justice for Siegfried s murder and also the fact that she was pretty upset that Hagan took all of her treasure it is was certainly a LOT of treasure and dumped it in the Rhine Anyway, it wasn t all that hard to actually pick a book to read in Germany, particularly since I have this habit of reading a book that has come from whatever country I am visiting Okay, that isn t necessarily easy for a lot of pl...

    Siegfried is murdered.Oops, did I spoil the whole story for you Well, too bad, because the poet himself spoils it within the first three pages.I m all for classics, what with being a major in English literature and all I mean, what else am I going to do with my degree than work a job totally unrelated to my field of study whilst crying myself to sleep every night using my now defunct Norton Anthology as a pillow Granted, this epic poem is German, but it s certainly part of what one would consider a literary education.At the risk of sounding unenlightened, I say skip this and just read a good summary unless, of course, you can read it in German Not only is my copy translated into English, it s written in prose form, which is particularly irksome Further, 285 pages of content could have been reduced to 28 pages of actual action I ve rarely read anything so boring, which is weird considering the wee bits of action are actually quite interesting.If you waste your time reading this poem, all you re going to get is redundant descriptions of people coming and going and sending emissaries to this or that place and accepting invitations to go to this or that festival, all while dressed impeccably wearing jewels that would bankrupt the world.The poet has a particularly annoying habit of interrupting himself to describe what people are wearing The back of my copy reads that it is an epic tale of murder and revenge Right More like an epic...

    As with Shakespeare s Pericles, I have a great deal of affection for the Nibelungenlied on account of the conflict in its structure The poet lost now has had to wrangle together two conflicting folk traditions into a single story His or her achievement here is subtle and remarkable.Northrop Frye says that a central trait of epic is a change of mode and subject halfway through the poem The Odyssey, the Aeneid and Paradise Lost all switch tack in the middle Odysseus and Aeneas romantic wanderings turn to comedic structures that is, to the establishment of a new social order in a single location and Paradise Lost makes a less pronounced move from the divine and demonic to the human But I ve never seen it done quite like this.The poem s first half has some of the strongest and most interesting characterization of any epic I ve read Kriemhild is sympathetic, but not weak We feel for her we do not feel the need to protect her There is a kind of burning drive in her, a determination that will become frightening in the second half Hagen, on the other hand, starts out frightening a scheming Iago, free of Iago s pathological obsession with Othello Hagen is worried by Siegfrie...

    Das Nibelungenlied ist das ber hmte mittelhochdeutsche Heldenepos, das vor ca 800 Jahren im s dostdeutsch ober sterreichischen Raum entstand Es ist das poetische Extrakt aus mehreren Sagen, wovon die bekannteste der Nibelungenstoff ist Im ersten Teil des Epos wird vom jungen Siegfried erz hlt, der den Schatz der Nibelungen erk mpft und durch ein Bad im Drachenblut beinahe unverwundbar wird Er wirbt um die sch ne K nigstochter Kriemhild und lebt lange Zeit bei ihren Br dern, den Burgundenk nigen Seine Ermordung durch deren Gefolgsmann Hagen zieht die furchtbare Rache Kriemhilds und damit den Untergang der Burgunden nach sich, der im zweiten Teil des Epos erz hlt wird Das Nibelungenlied wurde zu Hochzeiten der Vaterlandsverehrung als deutsches Nationalgedicht angesehen, das angebliche deutsche Tugend...

    Das Nibelungenlied ist es auf jeden Fall wert gelesen zu werden, vor allem, wenn man die Bestandteile auf das, was sie sind herunterbricht Aus heutiger Sicht wirkte es auf mich an manchen Punkten wie Comedy Wer mitspielt Siegfried Superstar und K nigssohn aus Xanten, der so wunderwunderwundersch n ist, das es niemand glauben kann Und nat rlich auch super stark Ute Muddi von den Burgunden Gunther Ihr Sohn, der auch sch n ist aber nur wunderwundersch n Gernot Sohn Nr 2Gieselher Sohn Nr 3 und der s e JuniorKriemhild Ihre sch ne und sooo liebe Schwester, die sp ter nicht mehr so lieb ist Br nhild Auch ein Superstar bis zu ihrer Entjungferung , berstark und krass drauf Hagen von Tronje Badass und Superschurke, bisschen geldgeil auf Siegfrieds Hort Etzel Ehemann Nr 2 von Kriemhild und noch viel cooler als alle anderen K nige zusammen Hinzu kommen weitere Nebenfiguren, die mich mit Stolz auf die althochdeutschen Namen blicken lie en, wie Dankwart Hagens Bruder , R diger von Bechelaren, Volker a.k.a der Spielmann, Ortwin, Dietrich von Bern etc.Was passiert Macht euch bereit f r spannungsgeladene Action Boten, die losgeschickt werden Fette Parties Reisen auf dem Boot oder zu Pferd Seitenlange Beschreibungen von Kleidung Ehrlich, ich wollte...

    As is probably true of many if not most readers of this work, I explored it primarily because of my interest in and enjoyment of Richard Wagner s great four opera work, Der Ring des Nibelungen I wished to read what was clearly part of his source material for the libretto and plot he created, and I wanted to see how closely the one work corresponded with the other.Written in Middle High German around 1200 CE, the legends comprising the written work reach back much farther into the past Its themes are tragedy and fate, inevitable retribution for misdeeds, the struggles of good and evil Many manuscripts exist, differing among themselves Of the 35 copies of the manuscript that are known to exist, many are fragmentary The manuscript considered most complete and reliable is the one translated here Long forgotten, this current text was rediscovered in the mid 18th century Some parts have been deemed not to have been part of the original and have been discarded in most current translations There were sagas about the Nibelungs in both Germanic and Scandinavian mythology, and it is unclear how each may have derived from or influenced the other, but most current scholarship understands this present work as being part of ...
