In this brilliant retelling of the Ring Cycle, noted Argentine/ Mexican poet Jorge Lujan gives us the true hero of these ancient and powerful myths Brunhilda. Through her love, passion and unwavering loyalty she redeems Siegfried. The gods and her whole world come crashing down around her, but by her sacrifice she manages to remain a stirring and admirable figure amongst the vain, the greedy, the venal and even the evil forces that surround her. She does not accept the stifling conventional view of marriage as espoused by Fricka, Wotan's wife. Neither does she succumb to brute power as exemplified by her father. Nor does she forget her love and betray her vows as does Siegfried, who is so inconstant and ultimately foolish.Lavishly and exquisitely illustrated by master artist Linda Wolfsgruber, and told in free verse, this book gives us a new way to look at the ancient story.
