PORTALES, Gonzalo. Nietzsche-Wagner: Pre-eminence of poetry in the total work of art. Estud. filol. [online]. 2012, n.49, pp. 117-125. ISSN 0071-1713. doi: 10.4067/S0071-17132012000100007.
This article examines Nietzsche's criticism to the concept of Gesamtkunstwerk - total work of art - within the Wagnerian aesthetics and considers its impact upon modernity. It begins from the Classical genesis of this artistic concept, then considers the elements of its composition - poetry, theatre, music, - and the supposed pre-eminence of the poetic text, and finally ends with a debate on the consequences to modernity, especially in relation to the Cultural Industry.
