Starting in 1793 with Wackenroder and Tieck’s tour of Southern Germany, he takes us through the nineteenth and into the twentieth centuries—to the end of romanticism and the onset of modernism—assessing the contribution of E.T.A. Hoffmann, Hector Berlioz, Robert Schumann, Thomas Mann, Anton Bruckner, Jean Sibelius, Frederick Delius and many others along the way.Applying his knowledge of split-brain psychology, Wilson is able to suggest that the descent into pessimism and self-pity, that destroyed so many of the great Romantic ‘Outsider’ artists, was a problem of weakness which can be avoided through self-discipline.
