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.
