About the Author

Victor Hugo est né à Besançon en 1802. Tout en suivant des études de philosophie et de mathématiques au lycée Louis-le-Grand, il s'adonne déjà à la poésie. Il obtient ses premiers succès avec les Odes et Poésies diverses (1822) et s'impose comme chef de file du mouvement romantique après l'ardente " bataille " autour de son drame Hernani (1830). Dès lors, sa réputation ne cesse de croître (Notre-Dame de Paris, 1831, Ruy Blas, 1838, Les Rayons et les Ombres, 1840) ; il se tourne vers la politique, et rejoint le camp des " libéraux ". Mais le coup d'État de Napoléon III le contraint à un long exil. Réfugié à Guernesey, il multiplie les chefs-d'œuvre : Les Châtiments (1853), Les Contemplations (1856), Les Misérables (1859), La Légende des siècles (1859-1883). Après la chute du second Empire (1870), son retour en France est triomphal. Il ne cessera d'écrire (Quatrevingt-treize, roman, 1874, L'Art d'être grand-père, 1877) jusqu'à sa mort en 1885 à Paris, suivie de monumentales funérailles nationales au Panthéon.

I read this book decades ago, now I'm just searching it for my son who is finishing his studies in France. This is not a review of a particular edition, it's a stating on the original french text of "Le dernier jour d'un condamné". This work is a masterpiece of literature of all times. It is written in the first person, the title tells it all, now it's up to you to find the best EN translation or to read it in FR. You won't be deceived: this text belongs to the cultural heritage of mankind.

A set of very interesting stories from the teen-aged Hugo. It's hard to believe her wrote "Bug Jargal" when he was only 17, but a great deal of that youthful heroism, adventure-seeking, and action story comes through in the story. This is also a good read for those interested in the Haitian revolution and independence, neatly woven into stories in which Hugo's own royalist ideas come through.

An outstanding depiction of the last days of a condemned man. In his book, Victor Hugo is making a documentary chronicling life on death rows and contrasting them with maximum security "lifers" in 19th century France, As an opponent of capital punishment, Hugo argues that the death penalty undermines the fair administration of justice, Hugo does not believe that the death penalty should be applied to any human being, even in the case of horrific crimes,. For him, capital punishment can never be administered fairly and justly.

I read it in French, then in English, then in French again. It's a good book to learn to read in French. It is also a very good short book with lessons for all.
