    And in the deeps of his heart he guessed, though darkly as in a glass, that from Siegmund the Wolsung should come that man for whom he waited, one free and owing nothing to the favour of the gods, who alone should be able to bring back to him the ring of the Rhine-gold, in whose circlet lay the wealth of the world and unmeasured might, even as Erda had foretold to him. Of thy name in stories of strife and war I have heard men tell. Tall was he as Hunding, but his form was slight as of a youth but lately come to man's estate, but in the clean lines of arm and leg there was strength and swiftness. My godhead is more to thee than that.

    Already the fire of love was beginning to burn within her, and her dreams every moment were flushed more deeply with life. Then, for here was a man sick perhaps to death, and in need of help, the thought that had not yet been consciously hers died again, and she went nearer to him. He then often visited Rye staying nearby at Leasam the home of his friend Lady Warrender. So I delay not, but go," and he turned quickly and went to the door. Unwittingly and by compulsion of her kindred and his she had married him; hate blossomed in her heart where the flower of love should have made fragrance, and in all but deed she was unfaithful to him. And thou spakest truly when thou saidst that thy coming gave no joy to any host, for thou art of a wild, unhallowed breed, whose right is wrong in the eyes of all the world of men, whose true is false, whose false is true.

    And in this long continuance of winter, when already spring should have awakened the earth with its glad shout, they saw in figure the winter of the gods; and when winter should cease and spring come, even so would come in the fulness of time now nigh the upspringing of men, in which should be forgotten the winter of the gods. Two other siblings died young. He combines detailed research, especially his use of primary materials from Thucydides and Plutarch, with writing flare, not an easy accomplishment. I name it, the sword of need—Nothung, Nothung. For the defenders of Walhalla are many in multitude: all these we have brought thee, as thou didst bid us.

The life of E. F. Benson book

Then she looked once more at the stranger and he at her, and with that the door opened, and Hunding, black as the night outside, stood there. For love is the sorest need a man can know, and that is mine; and deep is the dear wound it has made in my breast.

Then struck her a sudden wild thought, and again she gazed earnestly into his eyes. Exploring the cemeteries and catacombs of Alexandria was completely different from excavating in the rubble ruins of the Temple of Mut.

Then the flames from the hearth grew low again, and the shadows thickened in the hall. Do you think that I shall follow thee on such a road?

For there is woe to any with whom Wotan is wrath, for I walk with the thunder at my call, and my hand holds and steers the lightning. These hast thou begotten of a mere woman, a she-wolf, these twins. The principal setting of four of the Mapp and Lucia books is a town named Tillingwhich is recognizably based on Rye, East Sussexwhere Benson lived for many years and served as mayor from he relocated there during He combines detailed research, especially his use of primary materials from Thucydides and Plutarch, with writing flare, not an easy accomplishment.

Indeed there will be for thee an end of mocking if thou rousest my wrath. The software we use sometimes flags "false positives" -- that is, blocks that should not have occurred.

Where hast thou come, and whither goest thou? Yes, I am a man who ran from his foes. Benson and model for "Mallards" in the Lucia series. Ever had he taught her to love him, for Siegmund was dauntless of heart, and knew not what fear was. At length and at last the winter had ceased, and spring, that moment of all the year when the sap stirs in the trees, and the birds are mated, and lion seeks lioness in the Libyan hills, and man turns to woman and woman to man, spring was upon them in its overpowering fulness and sweetness.

Night by night he would commune with himself, wondering how it was that the strength and the merriment of old days had departed, wondering, yet in himself knowing. Then one after the other, beginning from Hunding, all tried to draw out the sword, yet none with his utmost might could stir it an inch from the place where the stranger had so lightly thrust it.

Little recked Hunding when in the house of aught but his food and his sleep; and the table at which he ate, the stool on which he sat, and the bed in which he slept were furniture enough for him. But he who shall take the treasure from Fafner must be free, unfettered, no slave or creation of mine.

Published over a period of some twenty years, the first, Queen Lucia, in and the third, Lucia in London, in are set in the village of Riseholme and tell the story of Lucia, leader of all artistic pursuits and social life in Riseholme.

But as he came into the hall, a hush fell on the din of merry-making, and none durst ask him who he was, or what his business there might be.

Ah, mete out the full measure of my shame. Shame has been thy portion in the house of hate. It was he who found my sword. In that brightness they saw each other more clearly yet, and the long look that had passed between them was again renewed.

For though nothing could have been more right than that he should wait for Hunding, her lawful lord, yet she knew why she had bade him stay, for the woman in her called for man.But little did the Valkyries heed such menaces, for their joy was in storm, and they drank deep from whirlwinds as a thirsty man will drink of a bowl of wine, and feel his strength come back to him; and the swifter the blasts screamed over the terror-stricken earth, the swifter did the Valkyries ride on their errands, and the louder and more.
