Book Description Aziloth Books, United Kingdom, 2015. Paperback. Condition: New. Language: English . Brand New Book ***** Print on Demand *****.William Morris is more widely known for his beautifully designed Arts and Crafts wallpapers, but his first love was ancient Nordic Poetry, and especially the 13th century Icelandic Volsunga Saga . Morris was obsessed with this tale from his youth, and over many years penned a 10,000 line epic poem that, on publication, was accorded high praise by such literary luminaries as George Bernard Shaw and T. E. Lawrence. The saga tells the History of the Volsungs, a tale strewn with epic battles, supernatural visitations, dragon-guarded treasures, enchanted swords forged from ancient weapons, magical rings, beautiful maidens, undying loves and implacable hatreds. The motifs and themes in the Volsunga Saga have inspired a host of artistic works, among them Richard Wagner s Der Ring des Nibelungen and J. R. Tolkien s Lord of the Rings . William Morris full poem proved taxing for most readers, and a shorter version - with some of the less compelling episodes prEcised by W Turner and H Scott - was published in 1910 to great acclaim. It is here presented in a new edition, complete with original glossary, additional imagery and a prEcis of the rarely-noted Book IV. Seller Inventory # AAV9781909735415

The Story of Sigurd the Volsung Written In Verse by William Morris With Portions Condensed into Prose by Winifred Turner The Story of Sigurd the Volsung and the Fall of the Niblungs (1876) is an epic poem of over 10,000 lines by William Morris that tells the tragic story, drawn from the Volsunga Saga and the Elder Edda, of the Norse hero Sigmund, his son Sigurd (the equivalent of Siegfried in the Nibelungenlied and Wagner s Ring of the Nibelung) and Sigurd s wife Gudrun. The story of Sigurd is important to English people not only for its wondrous beauty, but also on account of its great age, and of what it tells us about our own Viking ancestors, who first knew the story. The tale was known all over the north of Europe, in Denmark, in Germany, in Norway and Sweden, and in Iceland, hundreds of years before it was written down. Sometimes different names were given to the characters, sometimes the events of the story were slightly altered, but in the main points it was one and the same tale. If we look at a map of Europe showing the nations as they were rather more than a thousand years ago, we see the names of Saxons, Goths, Danes, and Frisians marked on the lands around the Baltic Sea. Those who bore these names were the makers of the tale of Sigurd. The name of the Saxons is, of course, the best known to us, and next in importance come the people we call Danes, or Northmen, or Vikings, who attacked the coasts of the Saxon kingdoms in England. The Saxons came from part of the land that is now known as Germany, and the Vikings from Denmark and from Scandinavia. A third important tribe was that of the Goths, who dwelt first in South Sweden, and then in Germany. Seller Inventory # APC9781517112639
