The book is divided into three parts: an overview of Raabc's career, his problems with the public, and the early reception history that did so much to damage his reputation; thematic analyses that seek to release him from received opinions concerning the nature and quality of his oeuvre by exhibiting his versatility and polyperspectivism; and interpretations of individual works.
