A translation of Hugo's ultimate confession of faith. The volume dates from the period of the great romanticist's exile in the English island of Guernsey, to which he fled when Napoleon III usurped the throne of France. It is composed of a group of rhapsodies on such themes as "Genius," "Life and Death," "Reveries on God," in which the most versatile of nineteenth century men-of-letters sets down his final convictions on art, on religion, and on life. "A graceful and scholarly translation." - The Independent
