Les Misérables

BIG NEWS! LMAO!

Louise Michel was a French feminist anarchist from the Commune de Paris (1871), and she was a close friend of Victor Hugo. She’s best known by her nickname “Enjolras”, because of her fighting for revolutionary stuff and because she decided to sign her poems this way. After a looong correspondence with Hugo (i ship them, also you have to know Hugo flirted with her so much), in 1851 they finally met. As everyone knows, “Les Misérables” was out in 1862, twelve years later their meeting.

When she was arrested in 1871, after the end of the Commune, Victor Hugo wrote for her his poem “Viro Major” (sorry for the shitty translation, i’m italian):

Those, woman, in front of your indomitable majesty,
they meditated, and despite the bitter bend on your mouth,
despite the cursed who, raging against you,
spitted at you all the angry screams of law,
despite his fatal and high voice that accuse you,
they saw the angel shining through the Medusa.

SO!!! Louise and Hugo met in 1851, Les Mis was published in 1862, and then !!! she called herself Enjolras in 1871.

Let’s not forget that Hugo maybe was in love with her, or at least he admired, loved, and venerated Louise. He had more than one lover, like Grantaire.

hello yes have i mentioned that i love Marius

  • me: time to take a shower and think about fluffy things
  • also me: did Grantaire see Enjolras' smile? did he see it? did he realise that he was making Enjolras smile? that he, R, was making Enjolras SMILE? did he died with that idea in mind and that happiness in heart?
  • again me: but what if he didn't? what if he was convinced that Enjolras took his hand with pity, just because he couldn't reject him? what if he was convinced that he was spoiling Enjolras' death? did he feel that he hadn't the right to die with the sun, him, the shadow? what if he was regretting his actions, not because he was going to die but because he suddenly thought that Enjolras didn't want to get shot with him, the drunkard, the useless one?

So, just found out at the far-right is apparently using Do You Hear The People Sing? as an anthem? Like…do they not…do they… are they that stupid? That’s not…do they not know what Les Mis is ABOUT?
