Upon reading unabridged Hugo I understand The man had complete chapters devoted to discussing the history of Paris or the history of the cathedral and while I admit that it was a clever way to show off his knowledge and spread his political ideals it was not what I bargained forThe novel would have been accurately titled “The Archdeacon of Notre Dame” Frollo was not a judge as in the Disney movie They just tried to secularize him to an euivalent position I argue that Frollo was the protagonist The story spent most of its time with him his internal struggle his plotting And his character was fantastic He was underhanded but I pitied him He was pathetic but I feared him He did evil but I loved him Frollo was not simply a powerful villain; he was a dynamic complex character that at times the reader could really sympathize withThe other characters in the novel were eually impressive Esmeralda’s sweet strong innocence she was only sixteen and foolish devotion to Phoebus is heart wrenching uasimodo’s strength of body and heart is awe inspiring Phoebus’ selfish arrogance is antagonizing The minor characters from the old heckling woman to the foolish young Frollo the Archdeacon’s brother to the rambling philosopher create a motley portrait of a fascinating worldHugo’s occasional comments on society cannot go unnoted I especially enjoyed one episode where uasimodo was being uestioned in court In the novel unlike in the Disney movie uasimodo is deaf so as he is being uestioned he tries to anticipate the judge’s uestions and answer them accordingly The irony is that the judge was doing the same thing Hugo created a deaf judge Beautiful Anyway a funny scene ensued and Hugo made his pointThe best part of the story maybe there were just so many good ones was likely Hugo’s portrayal of love Love was everywhere the inexplicable love Frollo had for his useless brother the love that caused Frollo to accept uasimodo the love that broke a mother’s heart at the loss of her daughter the faithful love that sent uasimodo to Frollo with his tail between his legs But the most stunning and provocative of all was the comparison of the three men who “loved” Esmeralda one man “loving” her so much that he wanted to possess her; one man “loving” her for the moment until another girl came along; and one man “loving” her so much that she went before everything before his desire to be with her before his desire to have her before his own desire to live swoons again Awesome bookWhen I started reading it everyone felt the need to warn me that it didn’t end like the Disney movie I was afraid I was scared that after stringing me along Hugo was going to kill it at the end Don’t worry he doesn’t The end is moving and beautiful and fitting and so what if it’s not Disney it’s greatAnd to further please the happy reader there were a million good uotes Here you go“Oh love That is to be two and yet one A man and a woman joined as into an ange; that is heaven” Esmeralda“Great edifices like great mountains are the work of the ages”“He found that man needs affection that life without a warming love is but a dry wheel creaking and grating as it turns”“Alas The small thing shall bring down the great things; a tooth triumphs over a whole carcass The rat of the Nile destroys the crocodile the swordfish kills the whale; the book will kill the edifice” Frollo“It is to this setting sun that we look for a new dawn”“Spira spera” “Breathe hope”“For love is like a tree; it grows of itself; it send its roots deep into our being and often continues to grow green over a heart in ruins”“What man orders Circumstances disorder” Frollo“Everyone knows that great wealth is not acuired by letters and that the most accomplished writers have not always a warm hearth in wintertime The lawyers take all the wheat for themselves and leave nothing by chaff for the other learned professions” Gringoire the philosopher “A lighted candle never attracts one gnat only”“That’s life It’s often our best friends who make us fall” Gringoire“The human voice is music to the human ear”Just a wonderful sample of the jewels contained in The Hunchback of Notre Dame The novel was difficult but well worth the effort I’m just sitting here in awe of it I can’t write any

ePub Notre Dame de Paris

Notre Dame de ParisTh century John Sturrock’s clear contemporary translation is accompanied by an introduction discussing it as a passionate novel of ideas written in defence of Gothic architecture and of a burgeoning democracy and demonstrating that an ugly exterior can conceal moral beauty This revised edition also includes further reading and a chronology of Hugo’s lif An interesting read – I enjoyed this though not as much as Les Miserables The characters were complex and interesting and the ending very powerful but it didn't uite hold my attention as much as Les Miserables
