From Umberto Eco to Jürgen Lodemann

Jürgen Lodemann, in his novel Siegfried and Krimhild (2002), takes inspiration from Umberto Eco’s The Name of the Rose to develop a multilayered and polyphonic narrative stream that draws parallels between the Nibelungenlied and some of the cultural, political and social preoccupations of modern Germany.
