- The first detailed investigation of the reception and cultural contexts of Puccini's music. Wilson's research is concerned with the ways in which Puccini's music and persona were held up as both the antidote to and the embodiment of the decadence widely felt to be afflicting contemporary Italy, a nation which although politically unified remained culturally divided. The book focuses upon two central, related questions which were debated throughout Puccini's career: his status as a national or intenational composer, and his status as a traditionalist or modernist. In addition, Wilson examines how Puccini's operas became caught up in a wide range of extra-musical controversies concerning such issues as gender and class. A contribution to our understanding of both the history of opera and of the wider artistic and intellectual life of turn-of-the-century Italy.
