review The Legend of Sigurd Gudrún Ò eBook or Kindle ePUB Rrounded by a wall of fire and of their betrothal; and of his coming to the court of the great princes who were named the Niflungs or Nibelungs with whom he entered into blood brotherhood In that court there sprang great love but also great hate brought about by the power of the enchantress mother of the Niflungs skilled in the arts of magic of shape changing and potions of forgetfulness In scenes of dramatic intensity of confusion of identity thwarted passion jealousy and bitter strife the tragedy of Sigurd and Brynhild of Gunnar the Niflung and Gudrun his sister mounts to its end in the murder of Sigurd at the hands of his blood brothers the. A strong 4 starsI was on the mission to collect all of Tolkien s works and try to read as many as possible in March It wasn t very successful as March was my busiest month but I managed to finish five books YayMy expectations were very neutral before reading My only experience with epic poetry was Robert Fitzgerald s The Iliad which I hoped to enjoy but was disappointed with a truckload of names that ran on for several pages But I knew the legend fairly well already so I didn t beat myself up too much for not finishing itThese two epic poems based on ancient Norse legend however were extremely intense and remarkable Tolkien painstakingly captured a saga of heroism madness and tragedy in his English translationHis son s notes and commentary attest to how well read his father was and how much of his famous work was driven by ancient myths Astounding effortThe flow of these two epic poems delighted me It was easy to read one line after another and there was a rhythm going that I could only imagine was tricky to maintain for such plot driven poetry Poetry for some can be dull and too obscure to enjoy for a light read but these were excellent It was a fast but well paced story anybody could read Of course for those who want to compare Tolkien s translation to the work of Snorri Sturluson the Icelandic poet that wrote the Prose Edda they could read up on the points on where the sources differ Christopher Tolkien also elaborated on the stanzas providing an in depth analysis of the epic poems that one could read or even skim and say WowAnyway if you were having doubts on picking this one up banish them and read it It was much easier to read than I expected and the story was incredible The descriptions of suffering and battle truly artistic This work is an undeniable symbol of Tolkien s creative skill I was skeptical about Beowulf but now I m definitely buying it in the bookstore
