This research monograph studies and reinterprets the works and ideas of Richard Wagner that have had such a profound influence on the artistic and intellectual life of France. His Romanticism influenced the French symbolists so greatly that they named their major journal La Revue Wagnerians. His musical themes, dramatic structures and philosophical tropes recurred in the works of almost every major French composer before World war One. Massenet was so devoted that he earned the sobriquet "Madamoiselle Wagner".

Ph.D, Fanshawe College,Canada

ART MATTERS is a clear and comprehensive overview of art criticism as it relates to both the value of art and the aesthetics of art. The author offers a new perspective on how science, philosophy and art overlap each other, the author argues that art can give us knowledge of our world and our place in it the same way that science or philosophy do (per se Deleuze or Kristeva).
