In this series of interrelated studies, Hirsch traces the influence of the archetypal 'lost paradise myth' on the origins and development of the Lied. Analysing in depth both the poetic and musical components of individual Lieder by Romantic composers from Schubert to Wolf and Mahler, she sets the songs in their biographical and cultural contexts and explores how they convey nostalgia for three 'lost worlds': classical antiquity, childhood and folk song.
