"If we remember the nietzschian reading of greek tragedy -- in a time that is sensible Wagner's influence under Nietzsche --, we will see that the oppositon between Apollonian (order, law, measure, reason) 'drive' ('Trieb', term posteriorly immortalized by Freud as being the 'substance' of psyche) and Dionysian (art, violence, mayhem, madness) 'drive' is present in the Wagnerian plot, in which gods and goddesses fight opposed tectonic forces: should we opt for love (impulse dictated by the god Dionysos, free and with no interests excepting the own joy of itself and of being loved) or the power (one excludes the other), features of the god Apollo, who everything controls, subjugating life to law and order?" (Pondé)
