Les Misérables is a novel written by Victor Hugo and originally published in 1862. It is considered one of the most important works of the 19th century.

In Les Miserables, Victor Hugo tells the story of Jean Valjean, a man who is imprisoned simply for stealing a loaf of bread to feed his hungry family. When he is released from prison, at the age of 19, it is really difficult for him to find a job because he has a criminal record.

He is taken in by a bishop who gives him money with which Valjean starts a new life. However, he is pursued by the police inspector Javert, who aims to return him to prison. Valjean will try to escape from this agent and be able to develop his own life.

The novel explores the themes of justice, morality and love. Examining the nature of law and grace, Les Misérables elaborates upon the history of France, the architecture and urban design of Paris, politics, moral philosophy, antimonarchism, justice, religion, and the types and nature of romantic and familial love.
