Puccini: Critical Biography
Bloomsbury Publishing Plc, 1999 - 592 pages
Divided into three parts, this book addresses all aspects of Puccinni's life and work. Part I, The Man, gives the facts of the composer's somewhat stormy life, quoting extensively from his own letters. Part II, The Artist, calls on the resources of modern psychology in assessing his personality and its curious limitations, and the unconscious springs of his creative processes. Part III, The Work, is a detailed guide to each opera, both music and libretto, with a synopsis of opera plots.
