Quote...Les Misérables

Victor Hugo, Les Misérables
It is on December nights, with the thermometer at zero, that we most think of the sun.

Les Miserables



Book Description

April 19, 2011

On one level Les Miserables is a detective story in which the relentless Inspector Javert obsessively pursues the escaped convict Jean Valjean. On another level, it is a drama of crime, punishment and rehabilitation set against a panoramic description of French society after Napoleon. But above all, Hugo’s masterpiece is about the metaphysical struggle between good and evil in the soul of every man. It is a plea for social justice, political enlightenment and personal charity.
