Henderson, Alice H.
Henderson, Donald Gene
Carl Maria von Weber : a guide to research
New York: Garland, 1990, 385 p.

This is what Donald Gene Henderson had to say:

Points out the importance of Weber as a critic and writer about music but also praises his uncompleted novel and his poetry. Detects some of the same characteristics in his prose and poetry as in his music: a strong interest in rhythm and a preference for sudden changes of mood. As a critic of the social conditions of his time, he shows a close relationship to Heinrich Heine.
