This edition of Rackham´s images, widely regarded as the greatest representations of Wagner´s drama, comprises 64 full-page color illustrations and 9 vignettes from ´´Siegfried, The Twilight of the Gods, The Rhinegold, ´´and ´´The Valkyrie.´´ ´´His pictures, which seemed to me then [aged 13] to be the very music made visible, plunged me a few fathoms deeper into my delight. I have seldom coveted anything as I coveted that book.´´ ? C.S. LewisBefore portraying Wagner´s ´´Ring,´´ Arthur Rackham (1867?1939) had become England´s leading illustrator through his interpretations of fairy and fantastic books: Grimm´s Fairy Tales, Rip van Winkle, Peter Pan in Kensington Gardens, A Midsummer-Night´s Dream. With his insight into elves, twisted oaks, and bearded heroes, Wagner was the logical step: with the ´´Ring,´´ Rackham brought his talent for ethereal watercolor and line into new realms of adult mythology.This edition reproduces, in full color, all 64 watercolor illustrations from Siegfried & The Twilight of the Gods (1911) and The Rhinegold & The Valkyrie (1912). The original English and American editions also contained black-and-white vignettes and tailpieces, a selection of which appear here: the original text, a dated English translation of the libretto, has been replaced by comprehensive descriptive captions and an introduction by James Spero.Rackham poured all his mature fancy into the ´´Ring.´´ The gnarled Nibelung Alberich sports with teasing Rhinemaidens, fiery Loge and lordly Wotan tussle with giants and serpents. An ecstatic Brünnhilde is finally consumed on Siegfried´s funeral pyre in perhaps the most successful representation of this scene anywhere, either graphically or theatrically. Wagner´s Teutonic forests and caves give Rackham free reign for his brooding, haunting nature backgrounds; characters, costumes, and all the tiny details are painted with such textual accuracy and empathy that today´s opera companies who wish to return to staging the ´´Ring´´ in the traditional manner turn to Rackham´s paintings for guidance.The painstaking reproduction of these artworks brings Arthur Rackham´s most heroic visions to the many collectors and admirers who cannot obtain the expensive out-of-print editions. With the aid of the clear captions, the Wagnerian cycle may be followed once again in its most time-honored and rich interpretation.
