Translated by Julie Rose
Introduction by Adam Gopnik

In this major new rendition by the acclaimed translator Julie Rose, Victor Hugoís Les Miserables is revealed in its full, unabridged glory. A favorite of readers for nearly 150 years, this stirring tale of crime, punishment, justice, and redemption pulses with life. Featuring such unforgettable characters as the quintessential prisoner of conscience Jean Valjean, the relentless police detective Javert, and the tragic prostitute Fantine and her innocent daughter, Cosette, Hugoís epic novel sweeps readers from the French provinces to the back alleys of Paris, and from the battlefield of Waterloo to the bloody ramparts of Paris during the uprising of 1832. With an Introduction by Adam Gopnik, this Modern Library edition is an outstanding translation of a masterpiece that continues to astonish and entertain readers around the world.

Julie Roseís acclaimed translations include Alexandre Dumasís The Knight of Maison-Rouge and Racineís Phedre, as well as works by Paul Virilio, Jacques Ranciere, Chantal Thomas, and many others. She is a recipient of the PEN medallion for translation and the New South Wales Premierís Translation Prize.

Adam Gopnik is the author of Paris to the Moon and Through the Childrenís Gate, and editor of the Library of America anthology Americans in Paris. He writes on various subjects for The New Yorker and has recently written introductions to works by Maupassant, Balzac, Proust, and Alain-Fournier.

  • Finally, unabridged!!

    I was searching for an unabridged version of Les Miserables everywhere and no one else had it. So if you want the full story - and why would you not??? - no need to look further than this book. I read Les Mis in highschool and loved it so this purchase was for my highschool aged son. He's really enjoying it. One nice feature is the extra notes about Victor Hugo, timeline etc. to enhance the story and make it a real learning experience. Very pleased with the book!
