OK so a couple years ago a girl in my class with the last name of Hugo told me that her family used to be really rich because one of her relatives wrote The Hunchback of Notre Dame. And now I realize fUCKING VICTOR HUGO WROTE THE HUNCHBACK OF NOTRE DAME. I GO TO SCHOOL WITH A RELATIVE OF THE GUY WHO WROTE LES MIS.
Original publisher of Les Mis having "the feels"
From Albert Lacroix to Victor Hugo, 1862
I read, I read everything, I devoured your immense work, I have seen its crowing. I cried. I was reading out loud to my associates and, twenty, thirty times, suffocated by emotion, my voice broken, believing I was witnessing the agony of a loved one, I had to stop, to interrupt my reading, and my associates as well could not contain any further their feelings which brought them to tears. Poor Jean Valjean!
