Description


Now an Oscar-winning movie, Les Miserables is a vast, magnificent tapestry set against the background of political upheaval in France during the post-Napoleonic era.

Published simultaneously in nine languages in 1862—Les Miserables tells the story of ex-convict, Jean Valjean, and his valiant struggle to redeem his past. A potent social document of the poverty, ignorance and brutality of man, Les Miserables is also a rousing adventure story, famous for such unrivaled scenes as the spine-tingling chase through the Paris sewers and the brilliant depiction of the Battle of Waterloo. Victor Hugo reached the peak of his powers in this far-reaching novel of nineteenth-century France. Here are combined the dramatic skills of Hugo the playwright, the rich imagination of Hugo the poet, and the compassion of Hugo the man.
