VERY GOOD book in VERY GOOD price-clipped dust jacket Profusely illustrated with over 100 pictures in black and white and colour, this book looks objectively at Wagner - the man, the revolutionary, the womanizer, and, most importantly, the musical genius. John Culshaw vividly recreates the life in which Wagner pursued success, luxury, and musical perfection with equal fervour (while intent of escaping his debts). The story of his eventful final years when he came to terms with his genius and launched his festival at Bayreuth complete the biographical section of the book. It is followed by the Wagner Repertory (stories of the operas).

To unravel this mystery the authors traveled to seven countries on three continents, revealing that as a young man Kurt Waldheim was a member of several Nazi organizations, and was an intelligence officer attached to HQ of the Wehrmacht's Group Army E, the Army later implicated in grisly reprisals against civilians and partisans in the Balkans and the deportation of Greek Jews to the death camps.

Walter Pater (1839-94) wrote only five books, yet those books, particularly 'The Renaissance" and 'Marius the Epicurean', were among the most influencial writings of the late Victorian age. In the tweny years following his death, Pater's reputation soared, but by the mid 1920s he had fallen out of intellectual fashion. This book traces the fluctuations in critical taste, and reprints the appraisals of Pater's admirers, together with the views of his major detractors.
