Richard Wagner and the Centrality of Love is a bold book which argues that Wagner's music dramas cannot be understood if treated separately from his essays, his life, the intellectual and artistic climate of his day, and the broader history of Germany

Richard Wagner and the Centrality of Love is a bold book which argues that Wagner's music dramas cannot be understood if treated separately from his essays, his life, the intellectual and artistic climate of his day, and the broader history of Germany. Wagner attempts a range of reconciliations that are radical in content and form and appear to succeed partly because he is in well-nigh complete command of the aesthetic product; not only text and music, but also production practice. Nonetheless, all the reconciliations ultimately break down, but in a manner that is illuminating.

Richard Wagner and the Centrality of Love, by Barry Emslie, Boydell Press £50, 312 pages. The romantic title is deceptive. We have been here before: books about the master of Bayreuth tumble out at a phenomenal rate. The initial lure has always been the music, the primeval force of which inspires as much obsessive adulation among admirers as it repels those who, equally obsessively, cite Wagner as the ideological father of Hitler’s Third Reich.

Love - sexual and spiritual, egotistical and charitable, love of the individual . BARRY EMSLIE is an independent scholar who lives and teaches in Berlin.

Love - sexual and spiritual, egotistical and charitable, love of the individual and of the race - is the key Wagnerian driving force. And therefore so is hate. Of course Wagner cannot employ love without its opposite, and it is critically significant that his anti-semitism is based upon his view that the Jews are 'loveless'. The book handles Wagner's anti-semitism (and the ongoing row about it) in a unique way, in that it is shown to be aesthetically and intellectually productive (for him!). This leads to a radical reinterpretation of Wagner's music dramas. eISBN: 978-1-84615-808-7. Subjects: Music, History.

This book is certainly ambitious in scope. From the outset Barry Emslie admits to the problematic nature of the term. The title is broad and the eight substantial chapters are based on the premise that love, sensual and spiritual, selfish and altruistic, love of nation and race, is the motor of Wagner’s creative project.

Richard Wagner and the Centrality of Love is a bold book which argues that Wagner's music dramas cannot be understood if treated separately from his essays, his life, the intellectual and artistic climate of his day, and the broader history of Germany. Wagner attempts a range of reconciliations that are radical in content and form and appear to succeed partly because he is in well-nigh complete command of the aesthetic product; not only text and music, but also production practice. Nonetheless, all the reconciliations ultimately break down, but in a manner that is illuminating. This is not a celebration of the seamless work of art, but a radical unpicking of the seemingly seamless. 'Love' is the central organising concept of the whole Wagnerian project. Love - sexual and spiritual, egotistical and charitable, love of the individual and of the race - is the key Wagnerian driving force. And therefore so is hate.
