It includes a review of the historical background of the work; summary of Schumann's experience in the sonata genre as evident in the composer's work as an editor and writer for the Neue Zeitschrift für Musik; a detailed analysis of the sonata with a special consideration to the elements of music analysis outlined by Schumann in his own sonata reviews.
