Dieses booklet: "Gesammelte Werke: Romane + Dramen + Gedichte + Balladen (Vollständige deutsche Ausgaben)" ist mit einem detaillierten und dynamischen Inhaltsverzeichnis versehen und wurde sorgfältig korrekturgelesen.
Victor Hugo (1802-1885) warfare ein französischer Schriftsteller. Er verfasste Gedichte sowie Romane und Dramen und betätigte sich als literarischer, aber auch politischer Publizist. Mehrfach struggle er, als Angehöriger der Pairskammer, Abgeordneter oder Senator, auch direkt politisch aktiv. Während er im deutschen Sprachraum weniger bekannt ist als etwa Molière, Voltaire oder Balzac, gilt er vielen Franzosen als ihr größter Autor überhaupt. Sein Schaffen kann teils der Romantik, teils dem Realismus zugeordnet werden. Etwa ein Viertel seiner Texte nach 1849 sind politisch motiviert und engagiert. Seine place scheint auf den ersten Blick widersprüchlich: Er verteidigt das Gewinnstreben und spricht sich gleichzeitig für soziale Gerechtigkeit aus. Er ist liberal, aber gegen Leute, die Profite kumulieren, statt sie zum Vorteil aller zu reinvestieren. Er verabscheut Krieg und Gewalt, aber ruft zum Widerstand auf, wenn es gilt, die Demokratie zu verteidigen. Mehrere seiner Werke wurden vom Vatikan auf den Index der verbotenen Bücher gesetzt.

Romane:
Han der Isländer (Band 1&2)
Der Glöckner von Notre-Dame
