L'esthétique du tragique chez Madame de Staël

Abstract : This study is devoted to the tragic in love staëliennes fictions. The noble heroes engaged in a futile struggle against fate, knowing they will die. Their ambivalence prevents any living individual fulfillment in a society that lives a huge social failure, moral and political. Precarious lived happiness is followed by silence, the absence and the feeling of a deadly guilt in a space and a time initially tragic. The tragic subject undermines his moral and intellectual qualities. Lucid, powerless before the tragic knowledge, disillusioned about love and life, this being accomplished his tragic role: sacrifice and disappear. His renunciation gives a moving and sublime effect. Staël denounces the tragic through the crimes of the Revolution, the tyranny of Napoleon. Human suffering can be improved. The tragic staëlien gives an aesthetic lesson: the truth is in moral freedom and beauty of the soul
