Chaos and Dancing Star discusses the anarchist, revolutionary, feminist and nationalist influences on Wagner, the revolutionary who turned the world of opera upside down. The books and articles that directly influenced him are examined in detail, including works by Bakunin, Proudhon, Hoffman, Stirner, Hegel, and the Marxists. Also investigated is the way Wagner influenced his contemporaries, and the way his work continues to influence artists, political activists, composers, and poets today.
