The Story of Sigurd the Volsung and the Fall of the Niblungs
Son of King Sigmund, young Sigurd is taught the ways of kings by the ancient, mysterious Regin -- who then sets him upon the seemingly impossible task: to steal the divine armor guarded by the Wallower on the Gold -- the great serpent Fafnir.
Astride the war-steed Grayfell and armed with a sword named the Wrath of Sigurd, the young hero crosses the Glittering Heath in pursuit of peril, glory -- and the Treasure of Andvari.
First published in 1876, this verse epic ranks high among the masterworks of William Morris (1835-1896).
