The playwright Ronald Harwood wrote a play named Taking aspects approximately Furtwängler’s denazification trial. The name appeals to the viewers to take aspects instead of summing up the plot of the play. Harwood makes his viewers witness a discussion of 2 contrasting views: Furtwängler, at the one hand who's confident of his innocence, and at the different, there's American investigator significant Arnold whose target is to turn out Furtwängler’s guilt. after all it truly is as much as the viewers to take facets (cf. Glaap 2003, p. 13).
Questions the playwright poses at his viewers are: “Why did Furtwängler remain in Germany while many different artists emigrated? (How) Did he be able to behavior the Berlin Philharmonic with out creating a take care of high-rank Nazis? Did he make up for his guilt via aiding a few Jews to flee? Can Arnold be interpreted as suggest of the 3rd Reich’s sufferers? (cf. ibid.).
This essay isn't really intended to eventually reveal the reality approximately Furtwängler’s guilt or innocence; different students have tried to do this. particularly, my curiosity lies in revealing if Harwood succeeded in making a impartial play that appeals to the viewers to take aspects with no revealing his personal own opinion. With this operating speculation i would like to begin by way of studying Harwood’s motivation to write down the play. As a subsequent step the significance of the surroundings could be tested. whilst analysing Harwood’s number of characters and their functionality touching on their wondering or their help of Furtwängler, i'll additionally learn Furtwängler’s function within the 3rd Reich as historical past details. via doing that, arguments taking facets for or opposed to Furtwängler may also be taken under consideration. additionally, i'm going to provide an summary of the critic’s voice on Harwood’s play. In my end i would like to reply to the query if Harwood succeeded in now not taking sides.
