Wagner the Mystic

Item# 1000005860

John Pohanka presents an innovative and articulate survey of Richard Wagner's aesthetic and philosophical development, within the historical context of mysticism. Comprehensively documented both from the composer's own writing and a host of philosophers, poets, and musicians, the author sheds new light on the question of why Wagner's music affects us like no other.
