Phillips, James M.: Representational Strategies in Les Miserables and Selected Drawings by Victor Hugo. An Intermedial Comparison Foreword by Jean-Jacques Thomas. New York, Bern, Berlin, Bruxelles, Frankfurt/M., Oxford, Wien Peter Lang Vlg. 1999. ISBN: 978-0-8204-4441-3
This book considers the interplay between art and literature by comparing representation techniques in passages from Les Miserables with artistic techniques in selected drawings by Victor Hugo. In both his artistic and literary production, Hugo uses a composite representational strategy that blends verbal and visual elements - attempting to break free of textual and pictorial media constraints. His dual interest in text and image foreshadows contemporary expressive production, which now dominates communication.

Seiten papierbedingt leicht gebräunt. Sehr guter Zustand. Frisches Exemplar. Wie ungelesen. - Victor-Marie Hugo [vikt?? ma?i y'go] (* 26. Februar 1802 in Besancon; 22. Mai 1885 in Paris) war ein französischer Schriftsteller. Er schrieb zahllose Gedichte sowie Romane und Dramen und betätigte sich als literarischer, aber auch politischer Publizist. Vielen Franzosen gilt er als ihr größter Autor überhaupt. Sein vielfältiges Schaffen kann teils der Romantik, teils dem Realismus zugeordnet werden. ... Werke: Das literarische Werk Victor Hugos umfasst neben zahlreichen Gedichten acht Romane, neun Dramen und unzählige kleinere Schriften. Etwa ein Viertel seiner Texte nach 1849 ist politisch motiviert und engagiert. Seine Position scheint auf den ersten Blick widersprüchlich: Er verteidigt das Gewinnstreben und spricht sich gleichzeitig für soziale Gerechtigkeit aus. Er ist liberal, aber gegen Leute, die Profite kumulieren, statt sie zum Vorteil Aller zu reinvestieren. Er verabscheut Krieg und Gewalt, aber ruft zum Widerstand auf, wenn es gilt, die Demokratie zu verteidigen. Mehrere seiner Werke wurden vom Vatikan auf den Index der verbotenen Bücher gesetzt. Neben seinem literarischen Werk hinterließ Victor Hugo ein umfangreiches zeichnerisches OEuvre, das vor allem in seiner Exilzeit entstand. Aus wikipedia-orgVictor_Hugo

france literature literatur Hugo, Victor: The Troilers of the Sea aus dem Nachlaß Gerhard Löwenthal, Gordon, London 1900 (ca.)
leinen - OLn. 470 S. guter Zustand aus dem Nachlaß Gerhard Löwenthal Like many young writers of his generation, Hugo was profoundly influenced by Francois-Rene de Chateaubriand, the famous figure in the literary movement of Romanticism and France's preeminent literary figure during the early 19th century. In his youth, Hugo resolved to be "Chateaubriand or nothing," and his life would come to parallel that of his predecessor in many ways. Like Chateaubriand, Hugo would further the cause of Romanticism, become involved in politics as a champion of Republicanism, and be forced into exile due to his political stances. The precocious passion and eloquence of Hugo's early work brought success and fame at an early age. His first collection of poetry (Odes et poesies diverses) was published in 1822, when Hugo was only twenty years old, and earned him a royal pension from Louis XVIII. Though the poems were admired for their spontaneous fervor and fluency, it was the collection that followed four years later in 1826 (Odes et Ballades) that revealed Hugo to be a great poet, a natural master of lyric and creative song. Victor Hugo's first mature work of fiction appeared in 1829, and reflected the acute social conscience that would infuse his later work. Le Dernier jour d'un condamne (The Last Day of a Condemned Man) would have a profound influence on later writers such as Albert Camus, Charles Dickens, and Fyodor Dostoevsky. Claude Gueux, a documentary short story about a real-life murderer who had been executed in France, appeared in 1834, and was later considered by Hugo himself to be a precursor to his great work on social injustice, Les Miserables. Hugo's first full-length novel would be the enormously successful Notre-Dame de Paris (The Hunchback of Notre-Dame), which was published in 1831 and quickly translated into other languages across Europe. One of the effects of the novel was to shame the City of Paris into restoring the much-neglected Cathedral of Notre Dame, which was attracting thousands of tourists who had read the popular novel. The book also inspired a renewed appreciation for pre-Renaissance buildings, which thereafter began to be actively preserved. Portrait of "Cosette" by Emile Bayard, from the original edition of Les Miserables (1862). Hugo began planning a major novel about social misery and injustice as early as the 1830s, but it would take a full 17 years for Les Miserables to be realized and finally published in 1862. Hugo was acutely aware of the quality of the novel and publication of the work went to the highest bidder. The Belgian publishing house Lacroix and Verboeckhoven undertook a marketing campaign unusual for the time, issuing press releases about the work a full six months before the launch. It also initially published only the first part of the novel ("Fantine"), which was launched simultaneously in major cities. Installments of the book sold out within hours, and had enormous impact on French society. The critical establishment was generally hostile to the novel; Taine found it insincere, Barbey d'Aurevilly complained of its vulgarity, Gustave Flaubert found within it "neither truth nor greatness", the Goncourts lambasted its artificiality, and Baudelaire - despite giving favorable reviews in newspapers - castigated it in private as "tasteless and inept". Les Miserables proved popular enough with the masses that the issues it highlighted were soon on the agenda of the National Assembly of France. Today the novel remains his most enduringly popular work. It is popular worldwide, has been adapted for cinema, television and stage shows. The shortest correspondence in history is said to have been between Hugo and his publisher Hurst and Blackett in 1862. Hugo was on vacation when Les Miserables was published. He queried the reaction to the work by sending a single-character telegram to his publisher, asking "?". The publisher replied with a single "!" to indicate its success. Hugo turned away from social/political issues in his next novel, Les Travailleurs de la Mer (Toilers of the Sea), published in 1866. Nonetheless, the book was well received, perhaps due to the previous success of Les Miserables. Dedicated to the channel island of Guernsey where he spent 15 years of exile, Hugo's depiction of Man's battle with the sea and the horrible creatures lurking beneath its depths spawned an unusual fad in Paris: Squids. From squid dishes and exhibitions, to squid hats and parties, Parisians became fascinated by these unusual sea creatures, which at the time were still considered by many to be mythical. The word used in Guernsey to refer to squid (pieuvre, also sometimes applied to octopus) was to enter the French language as a result of its use in the book. Hugo returned to political and social issues in his next novel, L'Homme Qui Rit (The Man Who Laughs), which was published in 1869 and painted a critical picture of the aristocracy. The novel was not as successful as his previous efforts, and Hugo himself began to comment on the growing distance between himself and literary contemporaries such as Flaubert and Emile Zola, whose realist and naturalist novels were now exceeding the popularity of his own work. His last novel, Quatre-vingt-treize (Ninety-Three), published in 1874, dealt with a subject that Hugo had previously avoided: the Reign of Terror during the French Revolution. Though Hugo's popularity was on the decline at the time of its publication, many now consider Ninety-Three to be a work on par with Hugo's better-known novels.(wikipedia)
