Definition of receptiveness:
- willingness (part of speech: noun)
Wagner waged warfare, not against the Italian opera, not against operatic composers, but against impostors and sophists, and while trampling upon the serpent in his own path he was as little likely to remain untouched by the good- natured lovableness of the Italian as he was to slight the high intelligence, the artistic receptiveness and thoroughness of the French.- "Wagner's Tristan und Isolde", George Ainslie Hight.
