A treasury of myth presenting the principal hero-lays of the great epic cycles of the Teutonic Middle Ages. These timeless tales of love and war formed the basis for a vast body of Western literature and art, and encompass the legends of the Knights of the Round Table and their exalted quest for the Holy Grail; the saga of Beowulf; the Hegeling and Nibelung legends, which inspired Wagner's Ring
cycle; and the legend of Lohengrin, the source of Parzival
and Wagner's opera.
Reprint of Romances and Epics of Our Northern Ancestors, Norse, Celt and Teuton, Norroena Society, London, 1907.
