John Mastrogiovanni's book contains one of the clearest interpretations of the Fall (and Redemption) I have ever read. Even if you do not agree with everything, you will be enlightened by several of the author's insights.
It adds to the expectation that the Bayreuther Festspiele can put together a new production of Parsifal (no matter whether traditional or modern staging) that lives up to Wagner's intentions and the opera's deepest meaning.
This book will certainly change the way you see Wagner, Parsifal, and possibly much more.
