"Victor Hugo's epic story, which follows the life of Jean Valjean, has a depth of vision, a compassion and a veracity that have ensured its place as one of the great works of European literature. Set largely in Paris against a background of revolution and political unrest, it centres on the underdogs or outcasts of society, in particular Valjean. Once a hardened criminal, Valjean has repented his crimes, but is nevertheless pursued by the implacable detective Javert. In scenes of unforgettable dramatic power, Valjean is chased through the sewers of Paris, while the July Revolution rages on."
