Item description for La tentacion de lo imposible/The Temptation of the Impossible: Victor Hugo Y Los Miserables (Ensayo) (Ensayo) by Mario Vargas Llosa...
Mario Vargas Llosa immerges himself in the novel Les Miserables from the perspective of the avid reader, the enthusiastic one, the creator that knows how a great work is constructed; therefore finding the secret mechanisms that moved Victor Hugo's pen. This work is not a book about another book; instead, he reveals the keys with which the French narrator made his creation. He discovers the tracks that speak of a writer, a political man but above all, a human Victor Hugo; one who is just another character in the novel. Description in Spanish: Del siglo XIX al siglo XXI. De novelista a novelista. De genio a genio. Mario Vargas Llosa, un clasico contemporaneo, se acerca a Victor Hugo y a su gran obra, Los miserables, con pasion de lector y conocimiento de creador, para rastrear las claves del narrador frances en su novela. Buceando en las palabras, Vargas Llosa se sumerge en el mundo de Victor Hugo -escritor, poltico, ser humano- y saca a la superficie las huellas de su vida y de su talento.

Mario Vargas Llosa and Victor Hugo's "Les miserables" Jul 30, 2005
This is a review of Victor Hugo's "Les miserables", of its characters and the religious meaning that the work (a huge novel attempting to cover everything) had for his author. It ends with MVL's interesting opinion on the influence of literature upon social life in open and close societies. It is a not very long and enjoyable read which I could not put it down. I highly recommend it.
