Victor Brombert reassesses in a modern perspective the power and originality of Hugo’s work, and provides a new interpretation of Hugo’s narrative art as well as a synthesis of his poetic and moral vision. The twenty-eight drawings by Hugo reproduced in this book are further testimony to the visionary nature of Hugo’s imagination.
