Victor Hugo (1802-1885)

Novelist, poet, and playwright, Victor Hugo is considered by some as one of the most significant artists of the French Romantic Movement. The body of his work, truly masterly, includes many major creations, such as "Les Misérables" and "Notre-Dame de Paris ("The Hunchback of Notre Dame").

In addition to his profession as a writer, Victor Hugo was equally a politically committed artist who openly manifested his opinions, in particular taking a stand against capital punishment in "The Last Day of a Man Condemned to Death" and "Claude Gueux". In several of his works, we can detect frequent criticism of politics, society, the human condition, and the French Revolution.
