Description

This study of Victor Hugo's work aims to uncover the diversity, the thematic and narrative singularity, and the shifting ironies and resistance to interpretative closure of his writing. Novels examined include: "Notre-Dame de Paris", "Les Miserables", "Les Travailleurs de la Mer", "Quatre vingt-treize", and "L'Homme qui Rit". The 11 essays in the volume bring together various critical approaches from French, British and American scholars, in an attempt to provide a new point of departure and to provoke discussion of Victor Hugo's novels. This publication marks the bicentenary of Hugo's birth in 1802.
