Product description

A monumental classic and one of the most widely read novels in history, "Les Miserables" portrays the epic struggle between good and evil in the soul of one man: Jean Valjean. In a world brutalized by poverty and ignorance, the ex-convict struggles to renew his life and reaffirm his humanity. But he is haunted, both by his seemingly inescapable past and the malignant shadow of the infamous police detective Javert. Rich in detail, packed with adventure, and filled with the sweep of human passions, "Les Miserables" is more than a literary masterpiece -- it remains a powerful social document. Dedicated to the poor, the oppressed, and the misunderstood, this captivating novel captures the impossible societal layers -- and the essence of life -- as it truly existed in nineteenth-century France. This fine edition features the renowned original translation and a sensitive abridgment.
