Read full description of the books:

En La balada de los völsungos se relata la historia del gran héroe Sigurd, el cazador del más célebre de los dragones, Fáfnir, de cuyo tesoro se apoderó; del despertar de la valquiria Brynhild, que dormía rodeada por un muro de fuego, y de sus esponsales; y de su llegada a la corte de los grandes príncipes a quienes llamaban los o nibelungos, de quienes se convirtió en hermano de sangre. En esta corte nació un gran amor, pero también un gran odio, alimentado por el poder de la hechicera, madre de los niflungos (o nibelungos), iniciada en las artes de la magia, de las transformaciones y de las pociones de olvido.

En escenas de dramática intensidad, de confusión de identidades, pasiones frustradas, celos y amargas luchas, la tragedia de Sigurd y Brynhild, del nibelungo Gunnar y su hermana Gudrún, se hace más intensa hasta su final con la muerte de Sigurd a manos de sus hermanos de sangre, el de Brynhild, y la desesperación de Gudrún. En La balada de Gudrún se relata su destino tras la muerte de Sigurd, su matrimonio en contra de su voluntad con el poderoso Atli, soberano de los hunos (el Atila histórico), el asesinato de éste a manos de los hermanos nibelungos de Gudrún, y la espantosa venganza que ésta lleva a cabo.

La versión de J. R. R. Tolkien es fruto de su exhaustivo estudio de la poesía noruega e islandesa recogida en la Edda poética (y allí donde no hay poesía antigua, de la posterior obra en prosa Völsunga Saga), de ahí el uso de estrofas breves cuyos versos imitan los ritmos aliterativos y la poderosa energía de los poemas de la Edda.

Read information about the author

Ebook La leyenda de Sigurd y Gudrún read Online! John Ronald Reuel Tolkien, CBE was an English writer, poet, WWI veteran (a First Lieutenant in the Lancashire Fusiliers, British Army), philologist, and university professor, best known as the author of the high fantasy classic works The Hobbit and The Lord of the Rings .

Tolkien was Rawlinson and Bosworth Professor of Anglo-Saxon at Oxford from 1925 to 1945, and Merton Professor of English language and literature from 1945 to 1959. He was a close friend of C.S. Lewis.

Christopher Tolkien published a series of works based on his father's extensive notes and unpublished manuscripts, including The Silmarillion . These, together with The Hobbit and The Lord of the Rings, form a connected body of tales, poems, fictional histories, invented languages, and literary essays about an imagined world called Arda, and Middle-earth within it. Between 1951 and 1955, Tolkien applied the word "legendarium" to the larger part of these writings.

While many other authors had published works of fantasy before Tolkien, the great success of The Hobbit and The Lord of the Rings led directly to a popular resurgence of the genre. This has caused Tolkien to be popularly identified as the "father" of modern fantasy literature—or more precisely, high fantasy. Tolkien's writings have inspired many other works of fantasy and have had a lasting effect on the entire field.

In 2008, The Times ranked him sixth on a list of "The 50 greatest British writers since 1945". Forbes ranked him the 5th top-earning dead celebrity in 2009.

Religious influences
J.R.R. Tolkien, was born in South Africa in 1892, but his family moved to Britain when he was about 3 years old. When Tolkien was 8 years old, his mother converted to Catholicism, and he remained a Catholic throughout his life. In his last interview, two years before his death, he unhesitatingly testified, “I’m a devout Roman Catholic.”

Tolkien married his childhood sweetheart, Edith, and they had four children. He wrote them letters each year as if from Santa Claus, and a selection of these was published in 1976 as The Father Christmas Letters . One of Tolkien’s sons became a Catholic priest. Tolkien was an advisor for the translation of the Jerusalem Bible .

Tolkien once described The Lord of the Rings to his friend Robert Murray, an English Jesuit priest, as "a fundamentally religious and Catholic work, unconsciously so at first, but consciously in the revision." There are many theological themes underlying the narrative including the battle of good versus evil, the triumph of humility over pride, and the activity of grace. In addition the saga includes themes which incorporate death and immortality, mercy and pity, resurrection, salvation, repentance, self-sacrifice, free will, justice, fellowship, authority and healing. In addition The Lord's Prayer "And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil" was reportedly present in Tolkien's mind as he described Frodo's struggles against the power of the "One Ring.''
