Les Misérables by Victor Hugo Summary

A brilliant new translation by Christine Donougher of Victor Hugo's thrilling masterpiece, with an introduction by Robert Tombs. The Wretched (Les Misérables) is the basis for both the longest running musical on the West End and the highly-acclaimed recent film starring Hugh Jackman and Anne Hathaway. Victor Hugo's tale of injustice, heroism and love follows the fortunes of Jean Valjean, an escaped convict determined to put his criminal past behind him. But his attempts to become a respected member of the community are constantly put under threat: by his own conscience, and by the relentless investigations of the dogged policeman Javert. It is not simply for himself that Valjean must stay free, however, for he has sworn to protect the baby daughter of Fantine, driven to prostitution by poverty. Victor Hugo was born in Besançon, France in 1802. In 1822 he published his first collection of poetry and in the same year, he married his childhood friend, Adèle Foucher. In 1831 he published his most famous youthful novel, Notre-Dame de Paris. A royalist and conservative as a young man, Hugo later became a committed social democrat and was exiled from France as a result of his political activities. In 1862, he wrote his longest and greatest novel, The Wretched (Les Misérables). After his death in 1885, his body lay in state under the Arc de Triomphe before being buried in the Panthéon. Christine Donougher is a freelance translator and editor. She has translated numerous books from French and Italian, and won the 1992 Scott Moncrieff Translation Prize for her translation of Sylvie Germain's The Book of Nights. Robert Tombs is Professor of History at St John's College, Cambridge. His most recent book is That Sweet Enemy: The French and the British from the Sun King to the Present, co-written with Isabelle Tombs.

Les Misérables (Texte intégral annoté) by Victor Hugo Summary

Ce livre numérique présente Les Misérables (Texte intégral annoté) de Victor Hugo avec une table des matières dynamique et détaillée. Ce roman, paru en 1862, un des plus populaires de la littérature française, a donné lieu à de nombreuses adaptations au cinéma. Victor Hugo y décrit la vie de misérables dans Paris et la France provinciale du xixe siècle et s'attache plus particulièrement aux pas du bagnard Jean Valjean qui n'est pas sans rappeler le condamné à mort du Dernier Jour d'un condamné ou Claude Gueux. C'est un roman historique, social et philosophique dans lequel on retrouve les idéaux du romantisme et ceux de Victor Hugo concernant la nature humaine. Victor Hugo, né le 26 février 1802 à Besançon et mort le 22 mai 1885 à Paris, est un poète, dramaturge et prosateur romantique considéré comme l’un des plus importants écrivains de langue française. Il est aussi une personnalité politique et un intellectuel engagé qui a compté dans l’Histoire du XIXe siècle. Victor Hugo a fortement contribué au renouvellement de la poésie et du théâtre ; il a été admiré par ses contemporains et l’est encore, mais il a été aussi contesté par certains auteurs modernes. Il a aussi permis à de nombreuses générations de développer une réflexion sur l’engagement de l’écrivain dans la vie politique et sociale grâce à ses multiples prises de position qui le condamneront à l’exil pendant les vingt ans du Second Empire. Ses choix, à la fois moraux et politiques, durant la deuxième partie de sa vie, et son œuvre hors du commun ont fait de lui un personnage emblématique que la Troisième République a honoré à sa mort le 22 mai 1885 par des funérailles nationales qui ont accompagné le transfert de sa dépouille au Panthéon de Paris, le 31 mai 1885. Contenu: LES MISERABLES — Tome I — Fantine LES MISERABLES — Tome II — Cosette LES MISERABLES — Tome III — Marius LES MISERABLES — Tome IV — L’idylle rue Plumet et l’épopée rue Saint-Denis LES MISERABLES — Tome V — Jean Valjean NOTES

The Novel of the Century by David Bellos Summary

GUARDIAN BOOKS OF THE YEAR 2017 'Never mind those self-help manuals urging that some classic novel may change your life; in this sparkling study of the birth, growth and afterlife of Hugo's evergreen blockbuster, David Bellos argues that Les Misérables already has' Boyd Tonkin, Economist 'Any reader who hasn't yet embarked on Hugo's book might be converted to the idea by this one' Daniel Hahn, Spectator The extraordinary story of how a simple tale of love and revolution, the poor and the downtrodden - Victor Hugo's beloved classic Les Misérables - conquered the world. There has never been a book like it. It is the most widely read and frequently adapted story of all time, on stage and on film. But why is Les Misérables the novel of the century? David Bellos's remarkable new book brings to life the extraordinary story of how Hugo managed to write his epic novel despite a revolution, a coup d'état and political exile; how he pulled off the deal of the century to get it published, and set it on course to become the novel that epitomizes the grand sweep of history in the nineteenth century. Packed full of information about the background and design of Les Misérables, this biography of a masterpiece nonetheless insists that the moral and social message of Hugo's ever-popular novel is just as important for our century as it was for its own. The Novel of the Century is a book as rich, remarkable and long-lasting as the novel at its heart. Les Misérables is available as a Penguin Classic, in an acclaimed new translation by Christine Donougher, with an introduction by Robert Tombs.

Les Miserables (Fully Illustrated Unabridged Hapgood Translation) by Victor Hugo Summary

This carefully crafted ebook: " Les Miserables (Fully Illustrated Unabridged Hapgood Translation)” is formatted for your eReader with a functional and detailed table of contents. Les Miserables is a French historical novel by Victor Hugo, first published in 1862, that is considered one of the greatest novels of the 19th century. The unabridged Hapgood Translation is widely regarded as a classic translation of this novel. This edition is fully illustrated with classic Les Miserables illustrations by different illustrators. Beginning in 1815 and culminating in the 1832 June Rebellion in Paris, the novel follows the lives and interactions of several characters, focusing on the struggles of ex-convict Jean Valjean and his experience of redemption. The novel elaborates upon the history of France, the architecture and urban design of Paris, politics, moral philosophy, antimonarchism, justice, religion, and the types and nature of romantic and familial love. Les Misérables contains many plots, but the main thread is the story of ex-convict, Jean Valjean (known by his prison number, 24601), who becomes a force for good in the world, but cannot escape his dark past. The novel is divided into five volumes, each volume divided into books, and subdivided into chapters (for a total of three hundred sixty-five chapters). Each chapter is relatively short, usually no longer than a few pages. Nevertheless, the novel as a whole is quite lengthy by modern standards, exceeding fourteen hundred pages in unabridged editions (nineteen hundred pages in French). It also contains what has many times, incorrectly, been considered the longest sentence in a published novel. Within the borders of the novel's story, Hugo fills many pages with his thoughts on religion, politics, and society, including several lengthy digressions, one being a discussion on enclosed religious orders, one on the construction of the Paris sewers, another being on argot, and most famously, his retelling of the Battle of Waterloo. Content: Volume I – Fantine Volume II – Cosette Volume III – Marius Volume IV – The Idyll in the Rue Plumet and the Epic in the Rue St. Denis Volume V – Jean Valjean

Figuring Transcendence in Les Miserables by Kathryn M. Grossman Summary

"The religious motifs in Les Miserables identify the sublime not just with utopian ideals (and the overthrow of Napoleon III's grotesque Second Empire) but with artistic death and resurrection. The novel is largely concerned with the monstrous "brutalities of progress" called revolutions that must precede the advent of heaven on earth, and Grossman traces that link to a mythos of sin and redemption, showing how the moral concerns of the plot also illuminate Hugo's aesthetics." "Les Miserables explores the tensions between heroes and scoundrels, chaos and order, law and lawlessness. Grossman painstakingly follows the novel's ethical hierarchy, from the grotesque (criminality), to the conventional (bourgeois complacency), to the sublime (sainthood), and she demonstrates how that hierarchy corresponds to two other hierarchies: the literary and the political. Hugo creates a system of master tropes, using structures of contiguity and resemblance, metonymy and metaphor, and through such complex patterns he defines the relation between history and utopian vision, politics and poetics, genius and revolution. Grossman reveals Hugo's virtually inexhaustible meditation on the romantic sublime, his poetics of transcendence."--BOOK JACKET.
