On Certain Aspects of the Crisis of Heroic Values in the Music Tragedies of Philippe Quinault

Abstract

The French music tragedy, created in the 70. of the 17th century, may be considered against a background of the tradition of the heroic literature of the first half of the century. However, the appearance of opera coincides with a general crisis of consciousness and one of the features of the crisis was the fall of the heroic myth. The aim of the dissertation is to take a closer look at the mechanisms of destruction of the hero, used in Philippe Quinault's music tragedies. Opera gradually eliminates the traditional vision of love, replacing it with the conception of a devastating passion. In taking the pattern of the hero's choice, appropriate for the heroic vision, it changes the configuration of accents by creating the type of the "pathological hero".
