Brigid Brophy first released her passionate, profoundly unique Mozart the Dramatist in 1964, revisiting it in this case in 1988. Organised through topic, the textual content deals tremendous readings of Mozart's 5 most renowned operas - Die Entführung aus dem Serail, Le Nozze di Figaro, Don Giovanni, Così fan tutte, and Die Zauberflöte - whereas a 1988 preface reconsiders Idomeneo and La Clemenza di Tito. Brophy's research is richly knowledgeable through her readings and pursuits in psychoanalysis, fable, and relatives among the sexes, yet her rigidity exceptionally is on Mozart's 'unique excellence', his 'double supremacy' either as a 'classical' and 'psychological' artist.

'An illuminating, invigorating, thought-provoking and profoundly human e-book, of vast worth to any lover of Mozart.' Jane Glover

Preface to the 1988 Edition In this new edition of a book originally published in 1964 I have expanded and amended several passages.

Art, as a fantasy worked on and recognised as untrue by the conscious but originating in the unconscious, it found the utmost difficulty in fitting in to the ideal, ‘natural’, sincere, truthtelling societies it was busy planning. Mozart, who was technically no more an eccentric than an innovator, was not in the least a man born out of his time. The great difficulty he presents to academic taste is that his idiom and many of his ideas swim quite happily with the current of his time; and that current, at least if we judge its nature by its prolific theoretical manifestoes instead of its actual masterpieces in the arts, had an anti-artistic direction.
