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 Wagner's frequent praise of Weber was essentially self-serving: the reinterment of Weber in Dresden (1844), for example, turned out to be Wagner's own theatrical production. Amasses considerable evidence to show that Wagner went on to live his life in theatrical terms. Contends this all began with the deep impression Weber's theatrical art made upon him as a youth.
