Cosima`s account of her marriage to Richard Wagner delivers a fascinating introduction to German culture, and European social and political history in the latter 19th century. We also learn about the rise of anti-semitism, a rather militant Wagner-cult, and the philospophical tendencies of the time. This book is much more than just a portrait of Wagner`s compositions.
