Art, poetry and religion were to him all the same object of study, and a key to the world of Greek imagination and feeling.

If his adventurous reconstructions, here and in his companion work on Greek tragedy, do not always command assent, they offer many brilliant observations and insights. His influence has been as diffuse as it is unacknowledged; again and again one finds on reading him that Welcker said it first.
