Originally published as volume 5 in the collected prose works of Richard Wagner. The essays written in this volume were written between 1870 and 1873. After Prussia's spectacular defeat of France, the coalescing of German states into a unified Germany, and Bismarck's declaration of the German Empire, Wagner suddenly felt like a prophet whose predictions had come true before his eyes. At last the German culture he longed to enlivenhad a German state as grand as his own ambition. Includes his famous essay 'Beethoven,' his letter to Nietzsche responding to the publication of 'The Birth of Tragedy' and others. Index. 383p.
