But if you are implying that d'Annunzio was somehow limited by bourgeois concepts, I am not sure I can really agree with that.I wouldn't be able to give you a very considered answer to that question a chara, only that Fascism does tend to center of the Great Man rather too much. Marx addresses this question in this text, where he says:
But unheroic though bourgeois society is, it nevertheless needed heroism, sacrifice, terror, civilwar, and national wars to bring it into being. And in the austere classical traditions of the Roman Republic the bourgeois gladiators found the ideals and the artforms, the self-deceptions, that they needed to conceal from themselves the bourgeois-limited content of their struggles and to keep their passion on the high plane of great historic tragedy.
