Summary

First published in 1998, this book focuses on the once celebrated but now neglected musical journalism of Henry Forthergill Chorley. For nearly forty years he effectively used his acerbic pen and idiosyncratic critical judgments to celebrate the works of Rossini, Mendelssohn, Meyerbeer, Gounod and Sullivan, and to scorn those of Schumann , Verdi and Wagner. This book also discusses his friendships with literary figures such as Charles Dickens, Elizabeth Barrett Browning, and Felicia Hemans, as well as his ongoing efforts to establish himself as a novelist as well as a journalist.
