Stories from Wagner Book Description

Introduction - It would be a longer story than all the Stories from Wagner put together, to tell where these tales began and how they grew, Centuries before they were set to music in the soul of Richard Wagner, some of them had been chanted around rude camp-fires by savage-looking men clad in the skins of animals. They were repeated by word of mouth long before even the rudest art of writing was learned and in various lands they were known, though the stories often differed. Fox in those days men believed in spirits, good and bad, and in giants, dwarfs, gods and goddesses. They told these stories to their children, just as real history is taught to-day and later the legends were treasured not only for their deep interest but also because they showed how people lived arid thought, long ago while the world was in tlze making. When Wagner, the great music-dramatist of Get many, was writing his wonderful operas, he found much of this rich material lying ready at his hand. Other parts he adapted to suit his needs. And it is the form in wIich he used the tales that has been followed in the simple retelling in the present volume hence the justice of the title- Stories from Wagncr. Let us pause a monlent to see who this author was, and how he came to collect his themes....
