Editorial Reviews

From the Back Cover

In the nineteenth century, the world is on the brink of changing forever. The Napoleonic Wars have upended European politics and the Industrial Revolution is reshaping humanity's relationship with the natural world. On the island of Guernsey, a young misfit endangers his life to win the love of a local heiress. Toilers of the Sea is a novel by Victor Hugo.

From Publishers Weekly

Though it sold briskly when first published in 1866, Toilers of the Sea, by Victor Hugo (1802-1885), is rarely read in the U.S. today. In time for the bicentenary of Hugo's birth, Modern Library has commissioned a new translation by Scot James Hogarth for the first unabridged English edition of the novel, which tells the story of an illiterate fisherman from the Channel Islands who must free a ship that has run aground in order to win the hand of the woman he loves, a shipowner's daughter. Gilliat, the embattled fisherman, contends with sea storms and monstrous predators that Hugo describes in exhilarating detail. Intended to be part of a triptych with Les Miserables and The Hunchback of Notre-Dame, the book laments the living conditions of impoverished workers, while celebrating their ingenuity and discipline.
