This is an extensive collection of essays on German composer Richard Wagner’s career, cultural relationships, and psychology. The contributors, most of whom are considered among the world’s leading Wagner experts, also discuss such pertinent subjects as the political exploitation of Wagner’s work by the Nazis.
