Victor Hugo's epic trilogy - La Legende des siecles, La Fin de Satan, and Dieu - is often said to contain his very finest literary achievements. This volume contains the ten best-known longer epics from the trilogy, supplemented by relevant shorter poems and unfinished fragments. Text and translation are presented on facing pages, with introductions, notes, and a comprehensive glossary of proper names and technical terms. Most of the poems included have never before been rendered into English.
