- The original aim of this paper was to encompass the bulk of Mythology’s impact on the arts Before very long I realized that to cover such a vast area, I would be treading dangerously close to a book’s length project I then decided to limit the topic to Mythology and its impact on music, specifically classical Again, this was an enormous field to limit to a short research paper After considerable deliberation I decided to focus primarily on the music of Richard Wagner (1813 – 1883), principally his “Der Ring des Nibelungen”, or, The Ring of the Nibelung
