One of the greatest epic novels in history, Les Misérables is the moving story of Jean Valjean’s struggle for redemption and his lifelong pursuit by Javert, a police detective determined to return Valjean to chains. Always one step ahead of Javert, Valjean encounters the tragic Fantine, and ultimately rescues Fantine’s daughter, Cosette, from her wretched life with the Thénadiers, treating the child as his own as she comes of age in pre-revolutionary Paris.
This special edition of Les Misérables also contains a review from the July 1862 issue of The Atlantic Monthly.
