The work is notable for the sense of justice which the author displays in according to each female her due share of blame & praise. He provides new illumination on the relationship with Minna, Wagners 1st wife, the old comrade whose own early moral laxity is usually glossed over by other biographers. Theres much new material about Mathilde Wesendonck, his greatest romance, & about Cosima, daughter of Liszt & wife of Wagners most faithful friend.

Lastly theres fresh light on Wagners Sweet Doll & on Judith Gautier to whose youthful charm he owed much of the inspiration for Parsifal & Lohengrin. In many ways this is one of the most revealing Wagner biographies ever written, for here the reader obtains a penetrating insight into the human side of the dramatic & complex personality behind the Wagner legend.Its a book for the lover of music, biography or romance.
