Les Misérables. The book written by Victor Hugo. One of the longest-running musicals, written by Alain Boublil and Claude-Michel Schönberg. The movies based off the musical. This tragic story will have you at the edge of your seat, but, please, get the story correctly.
Many people are to believe that this story takes place during the French Revolution. This, however, is incorrect. The French Revolution began in 1789 with the storming in Bastille, while most of Les Misérables takes place in 1832. Two different centuries.
De nuevo sola por la calle, voy vagando sin un rumbo. Sin ver ni
un rostro conocido, ni una casa, ni un amigo.
Llegó la oscuridad...quiero creer qué él está aquí.
A veces ando sola en la noche, mientras todos duermen. Pienso en él, felíz me siento, él me llena el pensamiento.
Descansa la ciudad...y yo empiezo a vivir.
Sola yo, pretendo qué le llevo en mi.
Y con él, camino hasta el halba.
Aún sin él sus brazos me rodeán. Si siento qué me pierdo, él me muestra el camino.
I'm sure mostof you have noticed that far more popular than the Cosette/Marius ship is the Éponine/Marius ship. I don't mind the ship, but I often find people asking why Marius was so blind to Éponine's love, never considered her and chose Cosette over her. Here are a few reasons:
1. First off, you have to know that the musical isn't completely honest with the character of Éponine, nor the relationship she shares with Marius. The musical had to make several altercations to the characters, including breaking the relation between the Thérnardiers and Gavriche (he is their...
Les Mis is, per the motto, the longest-running musical in Broadway history. For such a phenomenon to occur, there have to be at least 2 demographics: the lovers and the haters. Making a film adaptation of such a musical, you are met with equal reactions. The lovers, waiting in anticipation, and the haters, groaning about how far society has blown up a travesty. Since I'm neither, never before having seen the show or read the book, I went to the film with an open mind- expecting to see a good movie with music I knew. And that's what I got. There are many advantages to film. One is able to much...
What do we love Les Mis for? Well – you'll say – where should we start? The story, the characters, the music, the great performances... And, last, but not least: the lyrics.
I love the lyrics of Les Miserables and think they express much in a very simple way. I will focus on 10 texts which I've chosen and I will write what makes them so deep and worth of our attention. It's going to be a kind of litterary analysis, but not taken too strictly. The order of the songs will be like in the musical (well, this time is the exception). So, we will start with...
I thought it would be such a cute idea to show how Eponine and Marius met so here it is Disclaimer: I own nothing. It's based off of the musical NOT the novel.
"PONNIIIINNNEEEEE" Madame Thernadier shouted waking her 15 year old daughter up from her sleep. Eponine rubbed her tired eyes and put a dirty, itchy shawl on giving a huge yawn. Running downstairs and almost running into a man reading his morning paper staying at the Inn walking up to his room ."Damn it girl what the hell is your hurry?" "Sorry sir it won't happen again" . She new that a clobbering was in order if she...
okay there are people saying that his mistress was a girl named patricia well actually the story says "Enjolras claims that his mother is the republic and his mistress is Patria (motherland)" that mean his homeland so it means he's devoted to his country and the republic and others thought Grantaire liked him where the story says that Grantaire Admired Enjolras nd he looked up to him cause he was a good leader and When the army eventually arrived, Grantaire requested to be executed alongside Enjolras
