The Nibelungenleid, it has been said, is the Iliad of the Germanic races, and this comparison, though only a general one, never the less comes close to the truth. Granted that it is crude in some parts and lacks the balance and proportion of the Homeric epic, yet, says Professor J. G. Robertson, "neither in the Iliad nor the Odyssey--nowhere, indeed, in the epic poetry of any people--has the tragic movement of events been depicted upon such a sublime scale as in the second part of the Nibelimgen Not."

This highly interesting old epic will be the subject of a lecture by Professor Howard in his course German 6 to be given at 11 o'clock in the Germanic Museum.
