All the snakes fall asleep except one, which bites his heart and kills him. While in captivity they are all killed by a wolf, apart from Sigmund who escapes into the forest. Book Two. Contents[ edit ] The saga can be divided into five phases: the preliminary generations; Sigurd and his foster family; Sigurd and the Gjukingar; Gudrun and the Budlingar; and Gudrun's last marriage.

Signy then tricks her brother Sigmund into sleeping with her, and their son Sinfjotli who has nothing but Volsung blood becomes a powerful man raised with only one purpose: to avenge his uncles and grandfather. Gripir tells him after some hesitation, and Sigurd returns to Regin, saying he must avenge his father and other kinsmen before he kills Fafnir. Meanwhile, Grimhild encourages Gunnar to marry Brynhild. Byock links the historical Huns, Burgundians, and Goths with the extraordinary events of this Icelandic saga. A third important tribe was that of the Goths, who dwelt first in South Sweden, and then in Germany.

The aim of our publishing program is to facilitate rapid access to this vast reservoir of literature, and our view is that this is a significant literary work, which deserves to be brought back into print after many decades.

At the start of the saga, he guides his son Sigi out of the underworld. Odin then appears as an old one-eyed man and advises Jormunrek's housecarls to have the avengers killed with stones, which they do.

With its ill-fated Rhinegold, the sword reforged, and the magic ring of power, the saga resembles the Nibelungenlied and has been a primary source for such fantasy writers as J. When Signy offers her sons as tribute for family vengeance, Sigmund accepts Sinfjotli and rejects the other. Gunnar and Hogni choose to do battle rather than give away their spoils.

Apologies if this happened, because human users outside of Germany who are making use of the eBooks or other site features should almost never be blocked.
