It is a novel peopled by colourful characters from the nineteenth-century Parisian underworld: the street children, the prostitutes and the criminals. In telling the story of escaped convict jean Valjean, and his efforts to reform his ways and care for the little orphan girl he rescues from a life of cruelty, Victor Hugo drew attention to the plight of the poor and oppressed. Le Miserables is a masterful detective thriller, a comic and tragic story of romance and revolution and, ultimately, a tale of redemption and hope."@en ;
