Amfortas : In the German version of the Fisher King, the young prince is named Amfortas., p19-20.. Parsifal : p37, 38-48.. George, Saint : p50-51.. Symbolism of Orange : p51.. Symbolism of Salmon : p27-28.. Woundedness : p28-33.

The German version has an even more violent interpretation of the wounding of the fisher king. In Wolfram von Eschenbach's (12th cent. German) account a terrible collision occurs between the nature of light and dark, which reverberates down to our own time with its tensions and violence.
