BY THE SAME AUTHOR.

WAGNER.  BY JOHN F. RUNCIMAN.

“Here is Wagner written upon by one who knows all there is to be known about his music, and who is particularly sensitive to its beauty and its strength.  Hackneyed as the subject is, the whole point of view is quite fresh, and there is an astonishing amount of matter compressed into a very small space.  Altogether, the book has a critical value much beyond what is usually expected in publications of this class.”—­Manchester Guardian.

“Mr. Runciman has not, of course, made any attempt to give an extended biography of the man, or indeed to analyse his work with any minuteness; to do that one would require ten times the space which has been allowed him.  But he has given us a rough word-sketch of the man and a more than adequate account of the musician.  There is more thought, more ‘body,’ more common-sense in this booklet than in many a large tome that comes from Germany....  Mr. Runciman is to be congratulated on an excellent piece of work—­an essay that is acute, illuminating, and tactful.”—­Musical Standard.
