Patrick J. SmithPsychiatrist Stuart Feder writes of a "life in crisis." As such, the book concentrates on Mahler's emotional life: his melancholia, his fierce, independent will; his fear of death -- all of which are revealed in his music. Feder is quick to relate external events to specifics in the compositions, especially the songs, which are so often death-haunted.
