An Analysis of Love in Les Misérables
Transcript of An Analysis of Love in Les Misérables
Les Misérables was written in the late 19th
century by Victor Hugo.
The novel chronicles the life of ex-convict
Jean Valjean as well as those characters
he meets from 1815 to the 1832 June Rebellion
Considered one of the greatest novels of the
19th century, it has been adapted to stage and
screen on several occasions.
Ideological Love: Religion
Ideological Love: Justice
Liberty and Freedom
Enjolras and Les Amis de l'ABC
Fantine and Cosette
Marius and Cosette
Grantaire and Enjolras:
by Sarah Holly
"This skeptic had fanaticism... not for an idea, nor a dogma, nor an art, nor a science; it was for a man: Enjolras. Grantaire admired, loved, and venerated Enjolras."
"Nobody loves the light like the blind man."
Orestes Fasting and Pylades Drunk
Essentially a courtship.
Eponine and Marius
"Do you know, Monsieur Marius, you're a very pretty boy?"
"And then, do you know, Monsieur Marius, I believe I was a little in love with you."
"I have just met a woman in the street, who was crying as if her heart would break."
"She worshiped Cosette. The lower she sank, the darker everything became around her, the more the sweet little angel shone out in her innermost heart."
Jean Valjean and Cosette
"When he saw Cosette, when he had rescued her, he felt his heart move again. Everything within him, all feeling and affection, was aroused and poured out on this child."
"A group that almost became historic"
June Rebellion of 1832
Combeferre (the Guide), Courfeyrac (the Centre)
Enjolras (the Chief)
"He did not seem to know that there was a being on Earth called woman."
"Before anything but the Republic, he chastely dropped his eyes."
"For some hours Javert had ceased to be uncomplicated... Before him he saw two roads, both equally straight; but he did see two; and that terrified him— he who had never in his life known anything but one straight line."
"He was compelled to recognize the existence of kindness... Terrible situation! Moved to emotion."
Petit Gervais and the forty sous
"He saw himself then, so to speak, face to face, and at the same time through that hallucination he saw [Bishop Myriel]... His conscience considered in turn these two men placed before it, the bishop and Jean Valjean. Anything less than the first would have failed to soften the second."
