a masterpiece, all told the best book on Wagner I have ever read
*Literary Review*

After reading this book, only the most unadventurous reader would turn down the chance to see Wagner's masterpiece.

Roger Scruton is in many ways the ideal interpreter of the Ring

Highly original and penetrating ... he writes about the music authoritatively but comprehensibly... lucidly, cogently and even entertainingly

Admirably lucid ... a perceptive and detailed account ... constantly enlightening commentary
