Their specification and categorization emphasize a system and shed light on a practical theory deriving from a close reading of Voltaires dramatic works. Aside from linking him to his seventeenth-century predecessors in tragedy, his approach offers an ideological consistency equally relevant to his comedies.

Showing how closely allied Voltaires plays are to each other and the possibilities for deviation within similarity, this work provides a new perspective on Voltaires theater. It is the product of a man of the theater who relegates his role as philosopher to a secondary level, thus exploiting his philosophical notions to the benefit of his dramatic intent.
