Content descriptions

Summary, etc.:
In many ways, Les Mis?rables was the culmination of Hugo's ideas, as well as a sort of hidden autobiography of the writer himself. Lush, lyrical, and powerful, it describes a process of transition, of change. First published in 1862, news of the book crossed the Atlantic with astonishing speed and became a common companion to the soldiers of the Confederate Army in the American Civil war. In fact, it was found in so many Southern boys' duffle bags that the Army became unofficially known in certain circles as "Lee's Miserables."
