CRITIC REVIEW:

“The phenomenon of Richard Wagner has been recounted, analyzed, and discussed in such abundance that it would seem as if the end must be somewhere in sight. Books such as Dr. L.J. Rather’s THE DREAM OF SELF-DESTRUCTION - WAGNER’S ‘RING’ AND THE MODERN WORLD radically readjust the emphasis, to the extent of describing many of Wagner’s prose writings as ‘works of art’ and referring to his ‘greatness as a theoretician in the realm of the sociology of knowledge’.”
