Example text

The generic expectation leads, as we see in the cases of Rinaldo, Teseo, and Silla, to allegorical interpretations that are incomplete, inconsistent, and fail to relate adequately to the circumstances of contemporary politics. Interpreters treat as allegories stage works that exhibit no signs of being intended, devised, written, adapted, or perceived as topically allegorical or allusive. Moreover, the opera characters lack distinctive traits that would identify them with contemporary counterparts.

And if the opera is a damning portrait of Marlborough, why Handel, a representative to London of the elector (and so identified in the libretto), would collaborate in a work indicting the military genius guaranteeing the Protestant succession of his employer in Hanover needs to be explained. The generic expectation leads, as we see in the cases of Rinaldo, Teseo, and Silla, to allegorical interpretations that are incomplete, inconsistent, and fail to relate adequately to the circumstances of contemporary politics.

Nor can Rinaldo’s dalliance and enchantment by Armida, his deliverance by Godfrey, and capture of Jerusalem be reconciled with the events of the war. Hill was a pedestrian but competent writer, and we could expect that had he wanted an allegory, he was certainly capable of devising a plot that paralleled the war and made a political point. Of equal importance, there is no contemporary comment recognizing the allegory or political application. Given the heated political pamphleteering occurring during the Tory ministry€ – at the height of the Examiner and Medley exchanges between Swift and Arthur Mainwaring,89 for example€– it is unlikely a work celebrating the war aims of the previous Whig ministry would not have drawn comment from ministry polemicists.
