How many volumes of Les Miserables are there?
Is there an English version of Les Miserables?
C. E. Wilbour created the first English translation of Les Miserables in 1863, just one year after the original novel was first published. Wilbour's translation, though a bit archaic in its language at times, stays fairly true to the original French version.Jul 20, 2022
Is Fantine based on a true story?
Melodramatic though it may be, Fantine's story is apparently based on a real event. In 1841, Hugo himself saved a woman falsely accused. The story is described in his Things Seen (1887).Jan 16, 2013
