"Now for the first time we present Tolkien's dramatic version of the great Northern legend to Ukrainian readers. He composed two related poems basing on his close study of the ancient poetical traditions of Iceland and Norway and preserving exacting verse-forms, which helped him to render the concentrated energy of the poems of Edda. In the Lay of the Volsungs is told the ancestry of a mighty Sigurd, the slayer of Fafnir the Dragon whose treasure he took for his own; of his awakening of the Valkyrie Brynhild; of his coming to the court of the great princess the Niflungs (or Nibelungs); and of the a great love but also of a great hate, that sprang to life because of the skillful enchantress, mother of the Niflungs, and caused the bitter strife and the tragic end of Sigurd and Brynhild, of Gunnar the Niflung and his sister Gudrun. In the Lay of Gudrun is told of her fate after the death of Sigurd, of her marriage to the mighty Atli, the ruler of Huns (the Attila of history), and of brothers of Niflungs' murder by his order and their sister's terrible revenge. The poems is supplied with the detailed commentaries made by the editor and aimed to familiarize the readers with the distinctive features of Eddaic poetry and the real historical background of the legend."
