This takes the form it does because it was developed froma version of Chapter II of my Ph.D. thesis which I first of all e-mailedto the OPERA-L list,and which wasthen added to the WagnerArchive by its maintainer, Hannu Salmi.

The full title of my thesis is

A Comparison of Richard Wagner's "Der Ring des Nibelungen"and William Morris's "Sigurd the Volsung"

(University of Leeds, 1993.
