by Victor Hugo, translated by Isabel F. Hapgood

Les Misérables (1862), one of the most well known novels of the 19th century follows the lives and interactions of several French characters over a twenty year period in the early 19th century that includes the Napoleonic wars and subsequent decades. Principally focusing on the struggles of the protagonist—ex-convict Jean Valjean—to redeem himself through good works, the novel examines the impact of Valjean's actions as social commentary.
