1880 Works of Victor HUGO Odes Ballads Interior Voice French Literature Cromwell

“Even the darkest night will end and the sun will rise.”
― Victor Hugo, Les Misérables

The best-known and oft-considered greatest French writer is inarguably Victor Hugo. His romance novels and stories have withstood the test of language and time. Most known for his famous “Les Misérables”, Hugo’s contribution to the creative world will be remembered for all time.

This exquisitely bound two-volume set features 4 works from Victor Hugo. ‘Odes et Ballades’ played a crucial role in Hugo’s career. It distinguished him as a natural master of lyrical prowess. “Les Voix interieures” was amongst the first five works of poetry written by Hugo. Hugo began his writing career with Cromwell, and although he would not complete the play for many years it would open the door for him into the dramatic world. “Le Roi s’amuse”, the 4th work featured here was banned, after one night of performance, by the government. These four works are highly desirable for their significance in different points in Hugo’s career.
