Les Miserables

Why were they?

by Anonymousreply 901/06/2013

Well, times were bad! Wouldn't you be?

I mean, wretched in France in the early 19th century? What could an ex-con do in 1815?

How are you doing on your redemption? Are you examining the nature of law and grace? Expatiating upon the history of France, architecture of Paris, politics, moral philosophy, antimonarchism, justice, religion, and the types and nature of romantic and familial love?

Well, it's just a novel. Where would the story be w/o them?

"It was the best of times, it was the worst of times, it was the age of wisdom, it was the age of foolishness, it was the epoch of belief, it was the epoch of incredulity ..." but it wasn't Dickens and England, it was Hugo and France, and for many life in France sucked. Those sewers damn smell!

Not much less than he can do today, actually. A con can't vote, can't get a decent job, can't do much these days either.

Ex-cons can vote in France.
