Cette Semaine Sainte est celle du 19 au 26 mars 1815. Le débarquement de l'île d'Elbe a ecu lieu et "Bonaparte" a déjà dépassé Lyon. Louis XVIII est en fuite. Une indescriptible cohue l'accompagne, une foule de gens qui courent aussi vite qu'ils le peuvent de Paris à Béthune. C'est los angeles Maison du Roi, los angeles cour, les dignitaires, des maréchaux, les troupes qui sont restées loyales. los angeles France, encore une fois, se trouve partagée en deux. Il y a l. a. France du passé qui fuit avec Louis XVIII, et celle du présent, ses aspirations, ses espoirs, qui regarde du côté de Napoléon. L'empereur est-il plus proche de l. a. Révolution, plus proche du peuple que les Bourbons ? Un tel livre, un tel roman est most unlikely à résumer. C'est le tableau de tout un peuple à un tournant de son destin, c'est l'immense poème épique d'une société saisie au milieu de ses convulsions les plus caractéristiques. C'est une somme poétique, historique, romanesque, l'un des plus beaux livres d'Aragon.
