コンテンツ: Introduction --
Part I. Cultural decadence of the nineteenth century. Mercury, god of merchants, reigns over modern culture - The rabble and the Philistines set artistic standards - Criticism of the Vienna Opera House - Italian opera-an excuse for conversation and social gatherings - Paris demanded a ballet in Tannhäuser - Jews in music - Christian hypocrisy - Contrast between the present-day theatre and the Greek - The dissolution of the drama - The necessity of revolution - What is utopia? - The revolution --
Part II. The Greek ideal. Greek art and drama - A fellowship of players : communion of players and audience - The fellowship and the community : the priest as actor - The folk creates art - Definition of the folk - Myth as it relates to the folk and to art - The value of myth is its eternal truth - Feeling is the basis of understanding --
Part III. The origins of modern opera, drama, and music. Development of the aria : Gluck's contribution - Mozart and Rossini : the death of opera - Weber's contribution - Nadir of opera : music by Meyerbeer, libretto by Scribe - Opera affirms the separation of the arts - Origin of modern drama : the Romance and Greek drama - Essence of the romance - Myth diluted by Christianity - The Romance versus the drama : romance turns into politics eventually - The state versus the individual : understanding versus feeling - Poetry impossible in modern speech - When language declines, music, a new language of feeling, develops, until poetry becomes either philosophy or blends with music - Haydn and Mozart develop dance music into the modern symphony and make use of folk song and speaking melody - Yet they fail to achieve dramatic pathos or continuity of action-their works are characterized by a "lofty glee" - Beethoven makes music express storm and stress, but absolute music can express only mirth or endless yearning, it lacks the deed, the moral will : the Ninth symphony is the redemption of music into drama - Three descriptive and analytic programs : the importance of identifying the poetic subjects of Beethoven's works : The "Eroica" symphony, the "Coriolan" overture, the Ninth symphony (with parallel passages from the poems of Goethe) --
Part IV. The artwork of the future. Music and reality : Shopenhauer's theory extended by Wagner - Beethoven's symphonies reveal another world, whose logic is the logic of feeling - Poetry will combine with music in drama which also obeys the logic of feeling - Essence of drama is knowing through feeling - Myth represents a concentration of motives ; Summary of relations of myth, drama, feeling, and motives - Word speech must be strengthened to suit mythic drama - From ordinary speech a new art speech must be created, a concise and vigorous style - Rhythm determined not by artificial metrics but by the natural liftings and lowerings of the speaking accent - Alliteration unifies expression : Stabreim defined and illustrated - Poetic value of Stabrein - Use of rhyme : passing over word speech into tone speech - Different functions of the word poet and tone poet - Melody and feeling - Tonality and expression ; Setting Stabreim - Modulation and action - Harmony imparts feeling tone to melody - Poet and musician unite in the orchestra - Orchestra's power of speech : analogy with gesture - Foreboding and rememberance - Example from Lohengrin - The new musicodramatic unity - Relation of the poet to the musician - One artist or two? - Conclusion --
Part V. Wagner's development. Autobiographical sketch - Rienzi - The flying Dutchman : use of myth - Tannhäuser : the conception of higher love - Lohengrin : its novelty ; Elsa and Lohengrin as antithesis, representing the unconcious and the conscious - Siegfried : turning point in Wagner's artistic development, abandons history for myth - Breaks with operatic conventions - Growing inwardness of his art, concluding with Tristan, when only "inner movements of the soul" are depicted - Spiritual crisis : Schopenhauer ; The longing for death - Prelude to Tristan und Isolde - Negation of the will ; Dante ; Buddhism --
