About this item

Les misérables (1862) es una novela publicada por Victor Hugo y está considerada como una de las obras más conocidas del siglo XIX.La novela, de estilo romántico, plantea a través de su argumento un razonamiento sobre el bien y el mal, sobre la ley, la política, la ética, la justicia y la religión.El autor confesó que se había inspirado en Vidocq, criminal francés que se redimió y acabó inaugurando la Policía Nacional francesa, para crear a los dos protagonistas y que la historia de su país le había inspirado para situar el contexto histórico: por ello, los personajes viven la Revolución francesa (1789-1799) y los posteriores cambios políticos. Además, el autor analiza los estereotipos de aquel momento y muestra su oposición a la pena de muerte. En definitiva, esta novela es una defensa de los oprimidos, vivan en el lugar y momento histórico que vivan.ENGLISH DESCRIPTIONLes Misérables is a French historical novel by Victor Hugo, first published in 1862, that is considered one of the greatest novels of the 19th century.In the English-speaking world, the novel is usually referred to by its original French title. However, several alternatives have been used, including The Miserables, The Wretched, The Miserable Ones, The Poor Ones, The Wretched Poor, The Victims and The Dispossessed. Beginning in 1815 and culminating in the 1832 June Rebellion in Paris, the novel follows the lives and interactions of several characters, particularly the struggles of ex-convict Jean Valjean and his experience of redemption. Examining the nature of law and grace, the novel elaborates upon the history of France, the architecture and urban design of Paris, politics, moral philosophy, antimonarchism, justice, religion, and the types and nature of romantic and familial love.Les Misérables has been popularized through numerous adaptations for the stage, television, and film, including a musical and a film adaptation of that musical. The appearance of the novel was highly anticipated and advertised. Critical reactions were diverse, but most of them were negative. Commercially, the work was a great success globally.
