It is not simply for himself that Valjean must stay free, however, for he has sworn to protect the baby daughter of Fantine, driven to prostitution by poverty."

  • "Victor Hugo's towering novel of Jean Valjean, his unjust imprisonment, and his lifelong flight from a relentless police officer."@en
  • "Les Miserables is the story of Jean Valjean's transformation from criminal to hero, and his dedication to doing good in a world where harsh laws often thwart the most benevolent impulses. Imprisoned for nineteen years after stealing a loaf of bread to feed his sister's starving family, Valjean is on the path to becoming a repeat offender when a charitable bishop's act of pity compels him to become an honest man. Over the next two decades, Valjean becomes a successful businessman and a generous benefactor to his orphan ward, Cosette. But the implacable Inspector Javert, who knows of Valjean's criminal past and who enforces the law mercilessly, hounds him from town to town, seeking to apply a standard of justice that does not acknowledge either redemption or rehabilitation. A vivid historical romance whose events climax spectacularly during the Paris Uprising of 1832, Les Miserables was praised by Upton Sinclair as one of the half-dozen greatest novels in the world. This unabridged version of Victor Hugo's classic work is as stirring a tale of adventure today as it was when first published in 1862."@en

  • "El progreso, la ley, el alma, Dios, la Revolución Francesa, Waterloo, el idilio amoroso, la prisión, el contrato social, las barricadas de 1832, el crimen, las cloacas de París... todo tiene cabida en esta monumental novela. Y, como su título indica, todo gira en torno a la palabra "miserable", pues Víctor Hugo distingue entre los miserables hijos de la degradación material, aquellos que nada tienen salvo su dignidad; y los miserables producto de la degradación moral, a los que ya nada les queda, pues han perdido incluso aquello que les hace hombres: su humanidad. A partir del protagonista, Jean Valjean, presidiario que se reencuentra a sí mismo y se convierte al bien, seguiremos la historia de muchos miserables de ambos tipos, que giran en fantástico torbellino, los unos luchando denodadamente por avanzar hacia la luz, los otros deslizándose sigilosamente hacia las tinieblas, que siempre, en el fondo, tiene un origen que hay que ir a buscar lejos de quien la sufre."

Barnes & Noble Classics pulls together a constellation of influences&#151;biographical, historical, and literary&#151;to enrich each reader's understanding of these enduring works. One of the most widely read novels of all time, Les Mis&#233;rables was the crowning literary achievement of Victor Hugo's stunning career. Though he was considered the greatest French writer of his day, Hugo was forced to flee the country because of his opposition to Napoleon III. While in exile he completed Les Mis&#233;rables, an enormous melodrama set against the background of political upheaval in France following the rule of Napoleon I.This newly abridged edition of Les Mis&#233;rables tells the story of the peasant Jean Valjean&#151;unjustly imprisoned, baffled by destiny, and hounded by his nemesis, the magnificently realized, ambiguously malevolent police detective Javert. As Valjean struggles to redeem his past, we are thrust into the teeming underworld of Paris with all its poverty, ignorance, and suffering. Just as cruel tyranny threatens to extinguish the last vestiges of hope, rebellion sweeps over the land like wildfire, igniting a vast struggle for the democratic ideal in France.A monumental classic dedicated to the oppressed, the underdog, the laborer, the rebel, the orphan, and the misunderstood, Les Mis&#233;rables is a rich, emotional novel that captures nothing less than the entirety of life in nineteenth-century France.Laurence M. Porter has published twelve books, including Victor Hugo (1999), and a hundred articles and chapters. He was a National Endowment for the Humanties Senior Fellow in 1998. He teaches French at Michigan State University, where he won the Distinguished Faculty Award in 1995."
