About Author

Victor Hugo

A politician and writer of the French Romantic movement, Victor-Marie Hugo. He is acknowledged as one of France's greatest writers of all time. The Hunchback of Notre-Dame (1831) and Les Misérables are two of his most well-known compositions (1862). In his lifetime, he created more than 4,000 drawings and advocated for social concerns including the repeal of the death penalty. On February 26, 1802, Victor-Marie Hugo was born in Besançon. He was the youngest child of Sophie Trébuchet and Joseph Léopold Sigisbert Hugo. Against the desires of his mother, he fell in love with Adèle Foucher, and in 1816 they secretly were married. François-René de Chateaubriand had a significant impact on him. At the age of 20, Hugo's first book of poetry, Odes et poésies diverses, was released. With the dramas Cromwell (1827) and Hernani (1830), Hugo rose to prominence as the representative of the Romantic literary movement (1830). After being published in 1831, his book Notre-Dame de Paris (The Hunchback of Notre Dame) was swiftly translated into various languages throughout Europe. Hugo's best-known work, Les Misérables, was released in 1862. Hugo's pneumonia-related death on May 22, 1885, at the age of 83, sparked protracted national sorrow. In addition to being admired as a literary giant, he was a statesman who helped establish the Third Republic and democracy in France.
