My (modern English) translation of

The Ring of the Nibelung

This was a monumental project for me. I do think there's a place for a modern English translation of this masterpiece, and I hope it brings some benefit to those who want to study the masterpiece in a somewhat different light than can be gained from other translations.

This translation was completed several years ago, and samples are provided below so that you can get an idea of the style.  The entire work can be found at the Kindle store, at these links:
