John Maxwell Brownjohn is a British literary translator. He has translated more than 160 books, and won the Schlegel-Tieck Prize for German translation three times and the Helen and Kurt Wolff Prize once.

Gregor-Dellin has to be second choice after Barry Millington in English (the Master Musicians volume, not the more recent coffee table version) and Curt Westernhagen in translation. Newman may not be Gibbon, but he knows how to push words around for maximum resonance and meaning.

Walther soon tells Pogner of his desire to join the guild. Pogner subsequently introduces his guest to the other Mastersingers. The last to arrive is the cobbler Hans Sachs and, after another member calls roll, Pogner proudly announces that the contest's victor wins Eva's hand in marriage. At first excited, the Mastersingers soon voice concern over their loss of absolute authority in determining the winner when Pogner tells them that she can refuse the winner's hand if not satisfied.

Gregor-Dellin starts right off with se: he had ""a remarkable, textbook mother fixation""; his doubts about his paternity were unfounded but obsessive; early insecurities created an ""impaired. sense of balance vis-Ã -vis reality.

Discusses the distinguished German composer's personal life, musical career, and artistic development in the context of 19th century society

This is a good full-dress biography of Wagner, but there are so many others that are more insightful and/or better translated. Gregor-Dellin has to be second choice after Barry Millington in English (the Master Musicians volume, not the more recent coffee table version) and Curt Westernhagen in translation. Of course, if you want the best biography available you need to read Ernest Newman's magisterial tetralogy (about 3000 pages, I'd guesstimate), and besides learning more than you ever wanted to know about Wagner, you'll be treated to some very superior English prose. Newman may not be Gibbon, but he knows how to push words around for maximum resonance and meaning. Reading him from start to finish is daunting, but never boring.

Great biography. Reads like a novel. Engrossing and dramatic. Language is polished and poetic.
