A classic and must-have 17 May 2005
By C. Hauer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
This selection of legends by Wilhelm Ruland, translated by Andrew Mitchell and H.J. Findlay, is an invaluable resource for anyone interested in German legend and lore. The stories themselves are related according to the city on the Rhine and its corresponding story. Of course the most famous legends are included at least in part--Die Neibelungenleid and the Lorelei.

Unfortunately, these stories are greatly condensed and therefore not extrememly literary, but Ruland can be quite lyrical at times. Overall, I recommend the book to anyone who is interested in legends or German culture as a starting point.
