A thorough, analytical guide to The Legend of Sigurd and Gudrún, listing Tolkien’s sources for each incident in his poem and finding analogs in the rest of his work. Consists mainly of charts, which are an excellent guide through this tangle of Northern legend and an unfamiliar and highly allusive poetic style, and will provide a firm starting place for later scholarship on this long-unseen work. Includes a family tree of named characters in the poem.
