In Section XVIII, Aristotle                           ARISTOTLE_POETICS
presents the two parts of tragedy:

   Complication -> Unraveling

   "Many poets tie the knot well,
   but unravel it ill."

Aristotle cautions against trying to squeeze
too much into a single play: turning an
"epic" into a tragedy doesn't work.

And "by an Epic structure I mean one
with a multiplicity of plots".              (To this day, I think we continue
                                            to use the same terminology, but
                                            in a somewhat dissipated form...
                                            no one would regard "epic" as
                                            a term of disparagement.)
