Dorian Astor, Hermann Grampp
“Wagner sums up modernity. Whatever we do, we must begin by being Wagnerian. Nietzsche Glorified in France and Germany in the 19th century, the image of Wagner was hijacked: the revolutionary art of this close friend of Bakunin would soon be enlisted by the Nazis in the service of their propaganda. The authors return to Wagner's life, his philosophy and the contrasting reception of his work. They remind us of the emotional shock he caused and demonstrate that there is a before and an after Wagner in European cultural history.
