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:

Maintains that Weber's name is surrounded by cliches of popular Romanticism which are so profuse and vague that they obscure rather than clarify. Weber is no Romantic stereotype. In many ways, he is not Romantic at all. He faces both the past and future with arresting ambiguity and balance in a Janus-like position.
