Deconstructing 'The Ring' - Prelude

Richard Wagner's Der Ring Des Nibelungen has an interminable amount of interpretations.  In no particular order, I will offer a reading that does not exceed the boundaries of the text.

Each post will take a particular group, motif or action that happens either across the four works or within the individual works.  The relation to each will be considered only so far as it contrasts/compares to its counterparts.  By following through this method the intention will not be to demonstrate The Ring's structure but, rather, its structures.
