Waiting for minimum critic reviews


Les Misérables, the powerful story of Jean Valjean's redemption, is beloved by readers and theatre goers everywhere. Why? Because Victor Hugo's epic novel explores, through Valjean's heroic journey and transformations, truths and delusions about politics, morality, justice, religion, and both romantic and familial love. In this invaluable companion and guide to Hugo's masterpiece author John Morrison shares with Les Miz fans the spiritual depth and breadth of this classic novel and popular Broadway musical. ~.~.~.~.~. "I've just put down your manuscript. I had not gotten far into it before I knew that I was sitting at the feet of an excellent teacher, theologian, and literary and drama critic." ~.~.~ Thomas Howard, author of C. S. Lewis: Man of Letters. ~.~.~ "This book conveys the deep spiritual meaning of a literary classic. Hugo's commentary on the social life and ills of 19th century France is timeless and becomes, through Morrison's work, a reflection on how we, the "miserable ones" of today, are called to plunge deeper into the realities of God's presence and love for all." ~ The Rev. Canon Denis C. Brunelle, Director of the George Mercer, Jr. Memorial School of Theology (M.A. Liturgy and Homiletics, M.A. Medieval Theatre History)
