Get Les Misérables PDF

Notice SUR L'ÉDITION: présenter des morceaux choisis des Misérables peut apparaître comme une gageure. Quels fragments choisir ? À quels développements renoncer sans trahir los angeles cohérence de l'œuvre et le variety de Victor Hugo ?

Tout d'abord, nous avons choisi de supprimer les développements historiques et narratifs qui éloignent le (jeune) lecteur de l'intrigue principale (nous n'avons pas retenu le rappel des événements de Waterloo ou le récit des amours déçues de Fantine ; nous avons limité à sa plus basic expression los angeles description des journées de 1832 et de ses barricades) pour recentrer l'action sur les figures de Jean Valjean et du couple Cosette/Marius.

Ensuite, nous avons préféré limiter, chaque fois que cela était attainable, les coupures au sein d'un chapitre afin de restituer le souffle particulier de l'écriture hugolienne dans sa strength, voire parfois sa complexité.

Enfin, nous avons tenu à respecter le découpage de l'œuvre intégrale (divisée en events, livres et chapitres).

« Il y a dans notre civilisation des heures redoutables ; ce sont les moments où l. a. pénalité prononce un naufrage », écrit Victor Hugo au sujet de Jean Valjean. Acculé par los angeles pauvreté, l’homme vole un discomfort pour nourrir les siens et passe dix-neuf ans au bagne ! À sa sortie, rejeté de tous, haineux envers los angeles société, il n’a qu’une factor : retomber dans le crime. Mais une rencontre providentielle l’en détourne.

Jean Valjean pourra-t-il trouver le salut espéré ? Traqué sans relâche par le policier Javert, parviendra-t-il à échapper à son passé ? Mêlant roman à suspens, récit historique, épopée et critique sociale, Victor Hugo dessine avec ce chef-d’œuvre le chemin de croix d’une « humanité souffrante » qui, de « misérable », devient « elegant ».
