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.
In the morning of June 5, 1832, workers, students, and others gathered in the streets of Paris. The death of General Jean Maximilien Lamarque, who was a friend to the poor and downtrodden, was the trigger of the events that occurred that night.


Victor Hugo-who was at the age of 30-was sitting nearby writing a play. It was then when he heard a gunfire coming from Les Halles (Paris’ central fresh food market). Hugo-instead of heading back home-followed the sound of the gunshots. According to Wikipedia, Hugo headed north up the Rue Montmartre, then turned right onto the Passage du Saumon, finally...

Sola Yo

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.
Al llover las calles són de plata. Y la luz es bruma sobre el rio.
En la noche la luna ílumina, tu rostro con el mio para estar unidos siempre.
Y lo sé, es mi imaginación! Qué conmigo estoy hablando y no con él. Y aunqué sé qué nunca me amará...aún así...no le olvidaré!
Le quiero, y al acabar la noche. Él se va, el rio es solo un rio. Sin él mi mundo es como siempre: Los árboles sin hojas y yo solo entre la gente!

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 son), and discarding the character of Azelma (Éponine's little sister) completely. For the musical, Éponine's character was altered. In the book, Éponine is most definitely not a beauty, missing a few teeth, bags under her eyes and is a regular drinker, understandable traits for her character as she has been pushed into poverty. One key trait not made present in the musical (though added and portrayed beautifully by Celia Keenan Bolger) is that Éponine is slightly insane, disregarded by her parents and watching her childhood rival become everything she wanted to be. The musical cuts out some...
