1 Review
This expansive French tale of injustice and social unrest is widely considered to be writer Victor Hugo's masterpiece. While the 1862 novel features a large array of characters, it focuses primarily on the noble Jean Valjean, a man unfairly imprisoned for a minor crime of compassion. After serving a long sentence, Valjean struggles to find his place in a seemingly unforgiving society. As his fortunes change, France itself undergoes a major transformation. Hugo's sweepingly emotive story has been adapted many times, to considerable fanfare.

About the author

A prolific French novelist and poet, Victor Hugo was a leading light of the Romantic era. Raised mostly by his mother, in a religious and royalist family, Hugo traveled extensively as a youth, channeling his experiences into poetry that won national acclaim. He later rejected his early beliefs and began writing fiction, including The Hunchback of Notre-Dame and Les Misérables, an epic tale of class struggle that showcased his embrace of the 1848 Revolution.
