Description

Victor Hugo's The Man Who Laughs (first published under the French title L'Homme qui Rit in April 1869) is a sad and sordid tale -- not the sort of tale of the moment Hugo was known for. It starts on the night of January 29, 1690, a ten-year-old boy abandoned -- the stern men who've kept him since infancy have wearied of him. The boy wanders, barefoot and starving, through a snowstorm to reach a gibbet bearing the corpse of a hanged criminal. Beneath the gibbet is a ragged woman, frozen to death.

Прекрасни заглавия са включени в колекция "Върхове", която се надявам да продължава да нараства. Препоръчвам я на всеки! Иска ми се "Божествена комедия" и "Клетниците" също да бъдат част от нея.

Pros: Най-доброто!

Книгата е много добра,ако разпечатате и Клетниците ще бъде нещо уникално,не е издавана от 1988
