Title Rethinking Britten / Philip Rupprecht.

Bibliography Includes bibliographical references and index.
Summary This study explores a significant portion of Benjamin Britten's extensive oeuvre across a range of genres, including opera, song cycle, and concert music. Informed by earlier writings on the composer's professional career and private life, the book also uncovers many fresh lines of inquiry, from the Lord Chamberlain's last-minute censorship of the 'Rape of Lucretia' libretto to psychoanalytic understandings of Britten's staging of gender roles; from the composer's delight in schoolboy humour to his operatic revival of Purcellian dance rhythms; from his creative responses to Cold-War-era internationalism to his dealings with BBC Television.
