Abstract(s)Richard Wagner's libretto Parsifal (1882) is a drama with a universal symbolic resonance and great hermeneutical scope. It is, in fact, an archetypical drama, that is to say, a non-historical and founding drama for our vision of the western world. The authors of this paper, centring on the mythocriticism of Gilbert Durand, first examine the character of Parsifal (the so-called "chaste innocent"), which was described by Wagner himself and which, in turn, was inspired by the literary version of Parzival, written by Wolfram von Eischenbach between 1200 and 1207. Secondly, the authors maintain that the deepest meaning of the Wagnerian libretto (as Bühnenweihfestspiel, or sacred drama play) is to be found in the initiation traditions, which were well studied by Mircea Eliade, René Guénon and Pierre Gallais, among others. Thirdly, the authors explore the meaning of initiation unveiled in the libretto in its projection in contemporaneity. In a highly un-mythologized society such as the one we live in today, it is urgent to return to the fountains of Tradition, which is identified by us in a remythologizing perspective of the Myth.
El libreto Parsifal (1882) de Richard Wagner es un drama con resonancias simbólicas universales de gran alcance hermenéutico. Se trata, particularmente, de un drama arquetipal, o sea, a-histórico y fundador de nuestra visión del mundo occidental. En un primer momento es presentado el libreto del Parsifal de Richard Wagner; en un segundo momento, los autores, en la base de la mitocrítica de Gilbert Durand, buscarán, analizar la naturaleza mítico-simbólica del texto de Wagner que, a su vez, se ha inspirado en la versión literaria de Parzival de Wolfram von Eischenbach escrita entre 1200 y 1207. En un tercer momento, los autores defenderán que el sentido más profundo del libreto wagneriano, mientras Bühnenweihfestpiel (representación dramática y sagrada), debe ser buscado en la tradición iniciática estudiada por Mircea Eliade, René Guénon, Pierre Gallais, entre otros. El último punto será dedicado a la actualidad del sentido iniciático desvelado en el ya referido libreto, visto que en una época desmitologizada como aquella en que vivimos se impone retornar a las fuentes de la Tradición identificada por nosotros con el mito en una perspectiva remitologizadora.
