 By Victor Hugo. Translated by Isabel Florence Hapgood.

  

 The Man Who Laughs ("L'Homme qui Rit") was called by its author "A Romance of English History," and was written during the period Hugo spent in exile in Guernsey. Like The Toilers of the Sea, its immediate predecessor, the main theme of the story is human heroism, confronted with the superhuman tyranny of blind chance. As a passionate cry on behalf of the tortured and deformed, and the despised and oppressed of the world, The Man Who Laughs is irresistible. Of it Hugo himself says in the preface: "The true title of this book should be "Aristocracy'"-inasmuch as it was intended as an arraignment of the nobility for their vices, crimes, and selfishness. The Man Who Laughs was first published in 1869.

 Victor Hugo was a renowned poet, novelist and playwright of the Romantic Movement in 19th century France. He is considered by many as one of the greatest and best-known French authors of all times. He was also a political statesman and human rights activist, although he is primarily remembered for his literary creations like poetry and novels. In France, he is most revered for his poetry followed by his novels and dramas. Some examples of his outstanding poetry are 'Les Contemplations' and 'Les Legende des siecles'. His most popular novels are Les Misérables, Notre-Dame de Paris(The Hunchback of Notre Dame), L'Homme qui rit (The Man Who Laughs), and Les Travailleurs de la Mer (The Workers of the Sea). His work explores the political and social issues of his time and his books have been translated to several foreign languages.
