Wagners Ring and its Symbols I first read this book a few years ago but recently had cause to dip back in and was quickly absorbed Perfect for anyone interested in Jungian psychology symbolism and how these symbols pervade Wagner s Ring Cycle and the Eddic mythology on which it is based. My first reading opened the inner world of Richard Wagner to me As I listen to The Ring, I want to connect with the motives in music The author uses a system of numbering that might be useful His first musical example is The depths of the Rhine as undifferentiated nature Other useful musical relationships connect with the symbols such as that of Rebirth and the Wanderer investigated by Jungians. Like the operatic tetralogy itself, I ve re read this dozens of times and still get something new out of it every time. Overall an interesting book with a lot to it to help the Wagner newbie I still agree with my first reaction about the over abundance of Freud and Jung I skimmed or skipped almost all of this There is just enough detail about the plot to help the reader keep the thread, and the number musical themes that are referred to throughout are really useful I m going to keep this checked out at least until I get and am done with the Rheingold CD from the library I might do the whole cycle, depending. Fascinating This Book Is About The Poetical And Musical Symbols In Wagner S Ring And What Wagner Brought, With All The Suggestive Artistry At His Disposal, Into Symbolical And Artistic Consciousness, I As Critic Am Trying To Bring Some Small Stage Further On Towards Intellectual And Analytical Consciousness
