Reviews

A masterpiece--massive and magnificent. A book I've been waiting fifty years to read. It turns lights on in regions where I have bumbled in murk. --Peter Schjeldahl, author of Hot, Cold, Heavy, Light, 100 Art Writings 1988-2018

"Attention: a masterpiece! Wagnerism is extraordinary for the richness of references and testimonies drawn from literature, philosophy, the visual arts, musicology, the cinema. It is probably the most informed work on Wagner and his aesthetic and cultural significance that I have ever read. --Jean-Jacques Nattiez, author of Wagner Androgyne
