It's important to point out that this volume still has Arthur Rackham's beautiful illustrations (now classic), which deeply add to the atmosphere of the story--the images blend well with the imagined scenes, especially if you're reading on a color screen (Kindle Fire or any Android tablet or PC).
Overall, `The Rhinegold and The Valkyrie' is an excellent, competent translation, and there are many helpful notes throughout the book to further aid readers. Whether you're looking for a helpful reference on Richard Wagner and his most important works, or just trying to sate your curiosity about what the fuss is about this whole enduring fuss regarding `The Ring of the Nibelung' or if you just want to produce it in your local theatre, this volume is for you.
Worth the read if you want to be acquainted with the story. Useless if you are trying to immerse yourself in this important saga.
