This study examines the thematic unity of Les tragiques as the resolution of disorder, interprets its form as a fusion of generic tragedy and the epic, draws a parallel between the poem and the Book of Revelation, and treats aspects of structure and style as tragedy and Apocalypse. It also relates Les tragiques to the literary context of the time.
