Literature and life both can have an extraordinarily powerful, and parallel, impact on music. While fleeing from his creditors in a sailing vessel, Wagner experienced the force of a terrible gale that stirred his recollection of the story he'd read of a cursed ghost sailor compelled to atone for his sin by wandering the seas until Judgement Day. All of this, naturally, would evolve into a Romantic opera.
