A story of guile, treachery, loyalty and desperate courage

This great German epic poem of murder and revenge recounts with particular strength and directness the progress of Siegfried's love for the peerless Kriemhild, the wedding of Gunther - her brother - and Brunhild, the quarrel between the two queens, Hagen's treacherous murder of Siegfried, and Kriemhild's eventual triumph.

Composed nearly eight hundred years ago by an unnamed poet, the Nibelungenlied is the principal literary expression of those heroic legends of which Richard Wagner made such free use in The Ring. A. T. Hatto's translation transforms an old text into a story as readable and exciting as Homer's Iliad.

From Our Editors

What is dramatic love without the threat of death to either the love or the lovers or even both? The Nibelungenlied, the infamous German epic poem of murder and revenge, tells of medieval love and sibling rivalry. Bitter quarrels result in violent repercussions and strong women mistakenly end up in the wrong bed. Written by an unnamed poet, the epic has come to be a benchmark in German literature that would later set the tone for later drama. This translation brings the story to life, bursting with energy, passion and the rest of the emotions that fuel the spirit of deceit.
