Read full description of the books Les Misérables: Marius:

Even though Jean Valjean makes such a minimal appearance in this book, this volume was still so good. I was impressed multiple times by Victor Hugo's ability to write so poetically in prose. There were some pages and some paragraphs that really left me with a "wow" feeling, of having just read a piece of beautiful oeuvre.

The character developments and plot twists between the many different subplots continue to be very satisfying and delightful. I think I have found my new favourite French author, actually.


Noteworthy passages:

° Book Three, Chapter Four: the narration of Colonel Pontmercy's death, all alone. Voici the dry, simple, and heart-wrenching line, given the context: "On avait appelé le médecin et le curé. Le médecin était arrivé trop tard, le curé était arrivé trop tard. Le fils aussi était arrivé trop tard."

° Book Five, Chapter One: an account of Marius' descent into misery, and how firm and rare natures are sometimes born out of poverty and misery; "la misère, presque toujours marâtre, est quelquefois mère; le dénûment enfante la puissance d'âme et d'esprit ; la détresse est nourrice de la fierté ; le malheur est un bon lait pour les magnanimes."

On dignity and the refusal to go into debt: "Il se disait même qu'un créancier est pire qu'un maître ; car un maître ne possède que votre personne, un créancier possède votre dignité et peut la souffleter."

On misery: "C'est qu'en effet qui n'a vu que la misère de l'homme n'a rien vu, il faut voir la misère de la femme ; qui n'a vu que la misère de la femme n'a rien vu, il faut voir la misère de l'enfant."

"Ne pas voir les gens, cela permet de leur supposer toutes les perfections."
