The libretto to the work is more than a literary work of art- its intricate system of metric patterns, imaginative metaphors, ample use of alliteration and its singability combine to create something unique -- the music is in the text.This series provides not only a new translation of the libretto but also a guide through the labyrinth of the Ring, clarifying its literary and musical idiom and significance.

The fundamental element of Wagners music is the leitmotif, a short theme or motif associated with a particular person, object, event or idea. Each opera presents a panoply of these musical labels, which act as a unifying device, both dramatically and musically. The author clarifies Wagners complex use of the leitmotif in the Ring and his translations of the libretto, uniquely, signal the appearance of each leitmotif in the margin running alongside the libretto.The books can be enjoyed individually or as a series- either way they will equip the Wagner enthusiast with a fund of information to make the Ring journey more rewarding.Each libretto volume offers scene-by-scene synopses, introductions to all the new leitmotifs of that scene, a bibliography and selective discography.

The translation runs side-by-side with the German text, the margins identifying the motifs and offering a running commentary on the action.
