Winner of the "Adele Mellen Award for Distinguished Scholarship", this is a three-volume presentation of the totality of mythological thought associated with Wagner's "Ring". Volume one, "Nine Dramatic Properties", includes extensive treatments of: the "World Ash", "The Rainbow Bridge", "Donner's Golden Hammer", "Valhalla", and the "Ring". Volume two presents each god in rich detail and coverage. Volume three (Parts 1 and 2), "The Natural and Supernatural Worlds", includes a supplement on the names presented in the first two volumes with specific examination of every person, thing, or object given a proper name in the drama. Assembles and explicates the many miscellaneous elements, difficult to categorize, that are vital to appreciation of the Ring.
