Short Biography of Victor Hugo

Known for his widely published and translated novels Les Miserables and Notre-Dame de Paris, Victor Hugo was also a prolific writer of political poetry and prose. Through his exile from France into Belgium and eventually England, he was able to reflect on and discuss in his writings the political strain within France and apply it to prose that was appreciated by general society and academics alike.

Although his father was a general in Napoleon’s army, the young Victor leaned more towards the beliefs of his mother. His mother, who was a royalist, separated from his father due to their differences and took Hugo to Paris where he would live and go to school. He studied at the Pension Cordier and the school named Louis Le Grand. He went on to study law in Paris, but soon lost interest and his studies were forsaken.
