  • One of Victor Hugo's finest works, Les Miserables is a monumental classic dedicated to the oppressed, the underdog, the laborer, the rebel, the orphan, and the misunderstood. Les Miserables is a rich, emotional novel that captures nothing less than the entirety of life in nineteenth-century France. This great humanitarian work encourages compassion and hope in the face of adversity and injustice. It is also an historical novel of great scope, and provides a detailed vision of nineteenth-century French politics and society.  Sensational, dramatic, packed with rich excitement and filled with the sweep and violence of human passions, Les Miserables is not only a superb adventure, but a powerful social document.
