Content good, style at times difficult,
This review is from: Wagner (Paperback)
I am near to finishing this book for the second time. My gratitude to the author for opening my eyes to so many possibilities. Here is a book for the initiated and not ,as I was the first time around, a newcomer to Wagner and his thought. Tanner has a great way of outlining your options for understanding the works. I have little doubt that I will come back to the book in the future. The review of the irate Londoner does introduce a particular gripe I have with Tanner's style. At times his sentances are longer than the Victoria line and his vocabulary tends to shroud his intentions in unnecessary gobbledigook. For all that this is a very valuable book if you are interested in Wagner and his works.
