  • "Moving away from the explicitly political content of his previous novels, Victor Hugo turns to social commentary in The Man Who Laughs, an 1869 work that was made into a popular film in the 1920s. The plot deals with a band of miscreants who deliberately deform children to make them more effective beggars, as well as the long-lasting emotional and social damage that this abhorrent practice inflicts upon its victims."@en
  • "Gwynplaine and his surrogate family--father Ursus and sister and fellow foundling Dea--travel southern England as Gwynplaine performs at carnivals, using his grotesque facial expression as a punch line, only for Gwynplaine's lineage to be discovered in the midst of court intrigues and arranged marriages."@en
