"Good text with excellent bio-bibliographical chronology. I shall be happy to recommend it. I do not teach a class in which it would be a textbook, but I may well use it for examples in translation studies scholarship."--Marilyn Gaddis Rose, Binghamton University
From the Back Cover
Three extraordinary characters caught in a web of fatal obsession are at the center of Hugo's novel. The grotesque hunchback Quasimodo, bell-ringer of Notre - Dame, owes his life to the austere archdeacon, Claude Frollo, who in turn is bound by a hopeless passion to the gypsy dancer Esmeralda. She, meanwhile, is bewitched by a handsome, empty-headed officer, but by an unthinking act of kindness wins Quasimodo's selfless devotion. --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

Although, somewhat slow moving, and repetitive at times, my assigned 4 star rating was predicated on the significance and edification of the
authors vocabulary used in the book; I considered it a good read principally due to the vocabulary builder.
