Wagner Bicentennial Symposium  
Wagner as Metapolitical Revolutionary

richardwagnerpainting7,638 words

Karl Marx reserved a special place of contempt for those he termed “reactionists.” These comprised the alliance that was forming around his time among all classes of people, high-born and low, who aimed to return to a pre-capitalist society.

will mark a glimmer of unworldly light
when for a second he climbs walls to perch
by Jesus, having left for good the night.
