Thomas Hardys Tragic Poetry: The Lyrics and The Dynasts
He forgives Blight and Death because they are, like himself, the slaves of Destiny. His mood is too passive to be called despair.
It is more than a chronicle play. Yet it throws aside the restraints of all drama, ancient or modern.
The drama becomes a vast moving-picture spectacle, three volumes long, with an audience of supernatural spirits who make their comments as the reel unwinds. These spirits, being conceived as emanations of the mind, express the meaning of events. Yet that mind itself, like the actors on the screen, is a figment of material energy. The splendid setting of the play is announced in the Forescene.
Broad and lengthy lowlands stretch from the north of France across Russia like a gray-green garment hemmed by the Ural Mountains and the glistening Arctic Ocean. The scattered episodes are further united by the action of the chorus, who gather them into symbolic cohesion, involving them in one universal force, the Will that has no volition. For this gain in unity there is a corresponding loss.
Near the beginning, one spirit tells another to imagine for a while that men are responsible for their acts. Moreover, Napoleon is commended for understanding this fact. What might have seemed cowardice becomes a virtue!
