Love as a Power Relation:
Don Juan as an Archetypical Character in the Field of Interpretation
 
Abstract. The article examines love as a power relation and its representation in different social and cultural contexts and artistic forms. Main types of dominance/subjugation as regards love relations have been singled out. The change of meaning of these relations depending on the context has been shown. The main features of postmodern culture important for contemporary interpretation of power/subjugation in love have been examined. Author’s position has been illustrated by the research in the characters of Don Juan in literary and music texts.  and their representations in different discourses. The analysis of three representative stage versions of Mozart's "Don Giovanni" helped to trace the connection of politics of representation with philosophic ideas and cultural dominant features of different epochs.
 
Key words. Power, dominance, subjugation, context, representation, culture, interpretation, art.
