9788491051121: Los miserables / Les Misérables (Penguin Clasicos) (Spanish Edition)

Les misérables (1862) es una novela publicada por Victor Hugo y está considerada como una de las obras más conocidas del siglo XIX.

La novela, de estilo romántico, plantea a través de su argumento un razonamiento sobre el bien y el mal, sobre la ley, la política, la ética, la justicia y la religión.

El autor confesó que se había inspirado en Vidocq, criminal francés que se redimió y acabó inaugurando la Policía Nacional francesa, para crear a los dos protagonistas y que la historia de su país le había inspirado para situar el contexto histórico: por ello, los personajes viven la Revolución francesa (1789-1799) y los posteriores cambios políticos. Además, el autor analiza los estereotipos de aquel momento y muestra su oposición a la pena de muerte. En definitiva, esta novela es una defensa de los oprimidos, vivan en el lugar y momento histórico que vivan.

ENGLISH DESCRIPTION

Les Misérables is a French historical novel by Victor Hugo, first published in 1862, that is considered one of the greatest novels of the 19th century.

In the English-speaking world, the novel is usually referred to by its original French title. However, several alternatives have been used, including The Miserables, The Wretched, The Miserable Ones, The Poor Ones, The Wretched Poor, The Victims and The Dispossessed. Beginning in 1815 and culminating in the 1832 June Rebellion in Paris, the novel follows the lives and interactions of several characters, particularly the struggles of ex-convict Jean Valjean and his experience of redemption. Examining the nature of law and grace, the novel elaborates upon the history of France, the architecture and urban design of Paris, politics, moral philosophy, antimonarchism, justice, religion, and the types and nature of romantic and familial love.

Les Misérables has been popularized through numerous adaptations for the stage, television, and film, including a musical and a film adaptation of that musical. The appearance of the novel was highly anticipated and advertised. Critical reactions were diverse, but most of them were negative. Commercially, the work was a great success globally.

About the Author:

Victor Hugo (1802 - 1885), fue un poeta, dramaturgo y escritor romántico francés, considerado como uno de los escritores más importantes en lengua francesa. También fue un político e intelectual comprometido e influyente en la historia de su país y de la literatura del siglo XIX. Ocupa un puesto notable en la historia de las letras francesas del siglo XIX en una gran variedad de géneros y ámbitos. Contribuyó de forma notable a la renovación lírica y teatral de la época; fue admirado por sus contemporáneos y aún lo es en la actualidad, aunque ciertos autores modernos le consideren un escritor controvertido.

From AudioFile:

Un ex-presidiario llega a convertirse en un hombre de bien y respetado por la sociedad. Su pasado estará siempre presente en la mente de los demás y originando con esto situaciones desagradables en su vida. Narrando entre capítulos y diálogos, la voz del presentador da pie a los actores, con su voz siempre apacible y sin intención alguna de expresar mas emociones que solo las necesarias. Los actores, trabajan sus personajes de forma notable, presentando buena calidad interpretativa y mucha intención dramática, llegando en algunos momentos al clímax actoral. Incluso hay momentos tan intensos, que el lector puede sentir la brillante dramatización hasta el fondo de su ser. M.B.M.

[ENGLISH TRANSLATION]--An ex-convict longs to transform himself into a person respected by society, but his unfortunate past remains in the memories of others. A merciless police inspector recognizes and persecutes him, trying to return him to prison--all for the theft of a slice of bread. Reading both narrative and dialogue, the main voice gives continuity to the actors in this dramatic production. His restrained manner never tries to express more emotion than necessary. The background music and quiet delivery sometimes obscure important words. The other narrators develop credible personalities with their skillful interpretations, sometimes achieving a dramatic crescendo. There are moments so intense that listeners may feel them in the bottom of their being. J.A.H. © AudioFile 2006, Portland, Maine-- Copyright © AudioFile, Portland, Maine
