No composer was more controversial, prolific, or more misunderstood than John Cage (1912-1992). No critic has spent more years defending Cage and his work than Richard Kostelanetz. This work summarizes a lifetime's study of Cage's music, literary works, art, and philosophy. It both introduces Cage to the neophyte and offers valuable insights for the seasoned listener.
