LRB Winter Lecture: Is Wagner Bad For Us?

No composer before or since has divided taste and opinion as violently as Wagner has. In every generation of musicians and listeners there are those who worship Wagner, those who cannot abide him and those who feel love and distaste by turns.

At the start of the Wagner bicentenary year, Nicholas Spice asks: how do we get Wagner straight in our heads? How does his music work on us and what does this tell us about our relationship with music in general?

Nicholas Spice has written on music, psychoanalysis and fiction for the London Review of Books, where he has been publisher since 1982.
