Riassunto: A biography of Victor Hugo, discussing the man and his work. Hugo is the author of "Les Miserables" and the creator of the Hunchback of Notre Dame. He came to symbolize the revolution in French literature which overthrew the structures of classicism for the Romanticism of the late-19th century.
Recensione: It's easy to see why Victor Hugo won the 1997 Whitbread Biography Award. Unintimidated by the epic sweep of Victor Hugo's life (1802-85), British scholar Graham Robb analyzes it with intelligence, wit, and enormous verve. The author wears his learning lightly as he cherry-picks the vast Hugo archives to cogently chronicle his subject's evolution from leading poet of the Romantic revolution ( Hernani) to passionate novelist of the downtrodden ( The Hunchback of Notre Dame) to majestic political exile ( The Chastisements), thundering against the tyranny of Louis-Napoleon from the Channel Islands. Victor Hugo is a stimulating, opinionated reassessment of France's most monumental writer.
