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 treacherous intrigues and proceedings.The author knows and highlights chivalry values such as unfailing courteous behaviour to ladies of their choosing and everlasting faith and mutual protection between friends The style of writing is unique The story told in the German language of the nineteenth century is unusual in vocabulary and rhyme The beauty of the original can only be guessed.Chapter after chapter and sometimes between the lines, the author warns the reader of sorrow to come from ongoing actions and dialogues as they happen.This epic tale is the pride of German literature of the medieval ages.Its reading can be recommended to all friends with interest in chivalry literature. Because we all need some kick ass medieval literature in our lives. 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 has not been lost to antiquity Any one who has read and enjoyed Beowulf, Canterbury Tales, Aelfric s saga, etc should not give this a miss.
