Summary

In this classic of the French novelist Victor Hugo, we follow the adventures of the misshapen Quasimodo, who leads a solitary life in the bell tower of Notre-Dame de Paris. When his path crosses that of the beautiful gypsy Esmeralda, his world is turned upside down.
With his romantic description of the cathedral, Victor Hugo sparked a new interest in France for medieval architecture, which led to a wave of renovations. Quasimodo´s story is mostly known through the famous Disney animated movie from 1996.

Victor Hugo (1802-1885) is one of the most important writers in the history of French literature. During his lifetime, he was one the leading figures of Romanticism in France. In addition to his novels, he wrote a great many plays.
Hugo´s most famous novels are "The Hunchback of Notre-Dame" about a young, misshapen boy living a solitary life in the Parisian cathedral, and "Les Miserable" which describes the hardships of Paris´ poorest. These two novels, and many others of Hugo´s works, have been adapted into movies, musicals and plays.
