or Marie Hugo (1802 – 1885) was a French novelist, dramatist, and poet belonging to the Romantic movement. He is widely hailed as one of the most accomplished and wellknown French writers, originally achieving renown for his poetical endeavours-the most notable of which are the volumes “Les Contemplations” and “La Légende des siècles”. Outside of his native country, Hugo's bestknown works are his novels: “Les Misérables” (1862) and “NotreDame de Paris” (1831), commonly known as “The Hunchback of NotreDame”. Many vintage books such as this are becoming increasingly scarce and expensive. We are republishing this book now in an affordable, highquality, modern edition complete with a specially commissioned new biography of the author.
