A Victor Hugo (1802 – 1885) classic in French literature, “Ninety-Three” deals with the Reign of Terror during the French Revolution. It is a novel well equipped with melodrama, violence, and humanitarianism. Hugo is better known abroad for such novels as “Notre-Dame de Paris” (1831) and “Les Misérables” (1862). He was the third son of Joseph-Léopold-Sigisbert Hugo, a Major and, later, General in Napoleon’s Army. (The image of the author we included on our website is NOT in the book.)
