Tolkien’s The Lord of the Rings. 1. The gold is taken from the Rhine. Christopher Tolkien published it as The Legend of Sigurd and Gudrún in 2009. There are two poems or Lays as they are known: The Lay of the Volsungs and The Lay of Gudrun. Tolkien put a great deal of effort into these texts, which run to a total of more than 500 lines of verse.

But in the Wagner Ring-and this is really the subject of the entire opera cycle-evil is explicitly the result of greed, prospecting and exploitation.

Tolkien famously rejected comparison of his Ring with Wagner's, though there is good evidence that Tolkien knew much more about Der Ring des Nibelungen than he let on after the publication of The Lord of the Rings. Analysis of that work from a Wagnerian point of view enables consideration of it in a new way. By exploring the parallels between Wagner's Ring and Tolkien's, a fresh interpretation of Tolkien's work emerges, one that hinges on associating Gandalf with Wotan. Like Wagner's god, Gandalf has to find a way of solving the problems posed by the Ring and like Wotan he cannot succeed without other people. When the plots of The Lord of the Rings (and The Hobbit) are examined in this way it becomes apparent how much they owe to Wagner's music-drama, and the role of Gandalf is opened to new explanation.
