Complete list of my Library of Congress Copyrights

Post by alberich00 » Tue Jun 19, 2012 2:35 pm

Hello, Intrepid Discussion Forum members:

Over the years, various folks have expressed their curiosity about the entire history of my development of my allegorical reading of Wagner's "Ring" and of his other canonical romantic operas and revolutionary music-dramas. After copyrighting one version (2008) (among several prior ones, and two more recent revisions) of the part of my book "The Wound That Will Never Heal" which embraces Wagner's "Ring" (the most recent revision being the one posted on this website), I downloaded the entire list of my essays and book-length studies which I've copyrighted over the years at the Library of Congress in Washington, DC., and archived there. Should anyone ever wish to scan my paper trail, I list below in chronological order, from oldest to most recent, all of my copyrighted works. All without exception are attempts to strengthen my interpretation of Wagner's seven canonical operas and music-dramas.
