Victor Hugo

Victor Hugo, in full Victor Marie Hugo (; 26 February 1802 – 22 May 1885) was a French poet, novelist, and dramatist. He is considered the most well-known French Romantic writer. In France, Hugo's literary fame comes first from his poetry but also rests upon his novels and his dramatic achievements. Among many volumes of poetry, Les Contemplations and La Légende des siècles stand particularly high in critical esteem. Outside France, his best-known works are the novels Les Misérables, 1862, and Notre-Dame de Paris, 1831, (also known in English as The Hunchback of Notre-Dame).

    The wise man does not grow old, but ripens.
    Victor Hugo (1802–1885)

    To rise from error to truth is rare and beautiful.
    —Victor Hugo (1802–1885)

    And in the next instant, immediately behind them, Victor saw his former wife.
    At once he lowered his gaze, automatically tapping his cigarette to dislodge the ash that had not yet had time to form. From somewhere low down his heart rose like a fist to deliver an uppercut, drew back, struck again, then went into a fast disorderly throb, contradicting the music and drowning it.
    Vladimir Nabokov (1899–1977)
