1890-91 Oeuvres poetiques de Victor Hugo
What Our Customers Say...
A collection of four volumes of the poetical works of Victor Hugo. Containing: Ballades; Les Rayons et Les Ombres Les Chansons; Des Rues et des Bois Odes Les Chants du Crepuscule; Les Voix Interieures Illustrated with engraved frontispieces. Like many young writers of his generation, Hugo was profoundly influenced by Franois-Ren de Chateaubriand, the famous figure in the literary movement of Romanticism and France's preeminent literary figure during the early 19th century. In his youth, Hugo resolved to be "Chateaubriand or nothing," and his life would come to parallel that of his predecessor in many ways. Like Chateaubriand, Hugo would further the cause of Romanticism, become involved in politics (though mostly as a champion of Republicanism), and be forced into exile due to his political stances.
In calf bindings. Externally, smart, with just some slight fading to the spine. Internally, firmly bound. Pages are bright, with just a few instances of foxing.
