Summary
The novel traces the life of Jean-Valjean, a 19th century Parisan peasant who steals a loaf of bread to feed his starving children, and thereby becomes criminalized as a convict. This story of how he struggles to escape his past and reaffirm his humanity, in a world brutalized by poverty and ignorance, has become a powerful social document and the gospel of the poor and the oppressed
