This carefully crafted ebook: " Les Miserables (Fully Illustrated Unabridged Hapgood Translation)" is formatted for your eReader with a functional and detailed table of contents. Les Miserables is a French historical novel by Victor Hugo, first published in 1862, that is considered one of the greatest novels of the 19th century. The unabridged Hapgood Translation is widely regarded as a classic translation of this novel.
This edition is fully illustrated with classic Les Miserables illustrations by different illustrators. Beginning in 1815 and culminating in the 1832 June Rebellion in Paris, the novel follows the lives and interactions of several characters, focusing on the struggles of ex-convict Jean Valjean and his experience of redemption. 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 contains many plots, but the main thread is the story of ex-convict, Jean Valjean (known by his prison number, 24601), who becomes a force for good in the world, but cannot escape his dark past. The novel is divided into five volumes, each volume divided into books, and subdivided into chapters (for a total of three hundred sixty-five chapters). Each chapter is relatively short, usually no longer than a few pages.
Nevertheless, the novel as a whole is quite lengthy by modern standards, exceeding fourteen hundred pages in unabridged editions (nineteen hundred pages in French). It also contains what has many times, incorrectly, been considered the longest sentence in a published novel. Within the borders of the novel's story, Hugo fills many pages with his thoughts on religion, politics, and society, including several lengthy digressions, one being a discussion on enclosed religious orders, one on the construction of the Paris sewers, another being on argot, and most famously, his retelling of the Battle of Waterloo. Content: Volume I - Fantine Volume II - Cosette Volume III - Marius Volume IV - The Idyll in the Rue Plumet and the Epic in the Rue St.
Denis Volume V - Jean Valjean

Victor Marie Hugo, Born in Besancon, France and lived there most of his life. He decided to live in exile as a result of Napolean III's coup at the end of 1851 where Victor openly declared Napolean a traitor to France and did not return until Napolean was forced from power in the Franco-Prussian War in 1873. After the death of his mother in 1821 Victor married his childhood sweetheart, Adele Foucher, and they had five children.
He published his first novel in 1823, followed by five volumes of poetry between 1829 and 1840. Hunchback of Notre Dame was published in 1831, his first full length novel and quickly translated into numerous languages. Victor describes his shock and grief at the death of this daughter in 1843 in a poem called A Villequier. Victor started LesMiserables on social injustices and it would take 17 years to be published in 1862.
When he was in his seventies, Victor suffered a mild stroke, his daughter Adele's admittance to an insane asylum, and the death of his two sons. He celebrated his 80th birthday with a celebration and was presented with the Sevres vase, a gift for sovereigns. He died in 1885 and it generated national morning.
