The author explores Townshend's struggle between his own creative impulses and
those of the commercial public (the minstrel's dilemma). Townshend is shown as a musician
confronting the same battles begun by early minstrels and later fought by composers such as
Beethoven and Mozart. The academic presentation may be a bit cumbersome at times.
