Victor Hugo

Les Misérables, tome 1


Victor Hugo, écrivain engagé, entreprend ici un vaste réquisitoire social. Loin de n'être que le récit de la réhabilitation d'un forçat évadé victime de la société, Les Misérables sont avant tout l'histoire du peuple de Paris. Jean Valjean, et le lien qui l'unit à Cosette, en est le fil conducteur et le symbole. Homme du peuple par excellence, damné et accablé par les humiliations successives, Jean Valjean prend sur lui le péché du monde et l'expie. Dans son effort incessant pour se racheter, il assume un destin tragique qui nous renvoie le reflet de l'humanité en marche.

Hugo retrace ici avec force les misères et les heures glorieuses des masses vivantes qui se retrouvent. Les événements se précipitent, les personnages se rencontrent, se heurtent, s'unissent parfois, à l'image de Cosette et de Marius. L'histoire du forçat évadé et de la petite miséreuse symbolisent quelque chose de plus grand : avec Les Misérables, Hugo réalise enfin l'esprit du peuple.
