Victor Hugo - Author
1802-1885
French
Laughter is the sun that drives
winter from the human face.

Victor Hugo

Victor Hugo's life (1802-1885) spanned most of the nineteenth century, and no other author portrays that turbulent period of French history than Hugo; on his death, he was accorded a state funeral. He achieved excellence throughout his huge body of work, but his two lasting achievements are 'Les Misérables' (1862) and 'Notre Dame de Paris', now more commonly known as 'The Hunchback of Notre Dame'.
