In this attempt to shed new light on Alban Berg's life and music, the three main sections are each devoted to a particular genre. The first essay in each section surveys Berg's development within the genre concerned, whilst the subsequent chapters discuss particular works in more detail. An introductory section to the book sets Berg's music in the context of other artistic and musical developments of the period from 1890 to the 1930s. Douglas Jarman is author of "The music of Alban Berg" and "Kurt Weill".
