This book is the first detailed study to deal with Victor Hugo's verse in its totality. It shows how each work was composed, how the themes evolved, and how strategic considerations, as well as the events of the author's life, dictated the sequence of his publications. Victor Hugo: A Companion to his Poetry will be of value both to those who want to follow the stages establishing his pre-eminence in all categories of poetry, and to those seeking a closer reading of individual works. The book also shows the importance of the European dimension in Hugo's writings.
