This magisterial work transports readers to the streets of 19th century France, where we meet an unforgettable cast of characters. From the unfairly punished ex-convict Jean Valjean, to the street-smart urchin Gavroche, to the desperate and tragic mother Fantine and her beloved daughter Cosette, every character is impeccably portrayed and unforgettable.
What's more, Les Miserables is not just a novel; it's a masterclass in meticulous historical description. Hugo brings to life a Paris gripped by social upheaval and political turbulence, describing the living conditions of the poor, the riots that shook the city, and the stark class divides that threatened to tear French society apart.
Wordsworth Classics' edition is particularly special, thanks to the insightful introduction and notes by Roger Clark, a professor at the University of Kent in Canterbury. Clark's notes shed light on the historical context and themes of Les Miserables, enriching the reading experience and providing a deeper understanding of Hugo's masterwork.
