In the vaulted Gothic towers of Notre-Dame Cathedral lives Quasimodo, the hunchbacked bell-ringer. Mocked and shunned for his appearance, he is pitied by Esmerelda, a beautiful gypsy dancer, who has also attracted the attention of the sinister archdeacon Claude Frollo. When she rejects his lecherous advances, Frollo hatches a plan to destroy her that only Quasimodo can prevent--but with devastating consequences. Victor Hugo's sensational, evocative novel brings to life the medieval Paris he loved, and mourns its passing in this enduring tale of love, lust, betrayal, doom, and redemption--one of the greatest historical romances of the nineteenth century. Notre-Dame de Paris is a big book, and most publishers try to pack it into small newsprint pages with tiny, nearly unreadable type. This edition, on the other hand, has been newly designed and printed on large-format, archival-quality paper with easy-to-read type, making it a deluxe volume at a still-reasonable price. Complete and unabridged.

Three extraordinary characters caught in a web of fatal obsession are at the center of Hugo's novel. The grotesque hunchback Quasimodo, bell-ringer of Notre - Dame, owes his life to the austere archdeacon, Claude Frollo, who in turn is bound by a hopeless passion to the gypsy dancer Esmeralda. She, meanwhile, is bewitched by a handsome, empty-headed officer, but by an unthinking act of kindness wins Quasimodo's selfless devotion.About the Author:
