  • At 14, Turtle Alveston knows the use of every gun on her wall. She knows how to snare a rabbit, sharpen a blade and splint a bone. She knows that her daddy loves her more than anything else in this world and he'll do whatever it takes to keep her with him.

    But she doesn't know why she feels so different from the other girls at school; why the line between love and pain can be so hard to see. Or why making a friend may be the bravest and most terrifying thing she has ever done.

    Victor Hugo

    Biographical noteVictor Hugo (1802-85) was the most forceful, prolific and versatile of French nineteenth-century writers. He wrote Romantic costume dramas, many volumes of lyrical and satirical verse, political and other journalism, criticism and several novels, the best known of which are Les Misérables (1862) and the youthful Notre-Dame de Paris (1831). A royalist and conservative as a young man, Hugo later became a committed social democrat and during the Second Empire of Napoleon III was exiled from France, living in the Channel Islands. He returned to Paris in 1870 and remained a great public figure until his death: his body lay in state under the Arc de Triomphe before being buried in the Panthéon. Main descriptionNow a major musical film from Oscar-winning director Tom Hooper (The King's Speech), starring Hugh Jackman, Russell Crowe and Anne Hathaway, and also featuring Amanda Seyfreid, Helena Bonham-Carter and Sacha Baron-Cohen, Victor Hugo's Les Misérables is one of the great works of western literature.Victor Hugo's tale of injustice, heroism and love follows the fortunes of Jean Valjean (Hugh Jackman), an escaped convict determined to put his criminal past behind him. But his attempts to become a respected member of the community are constantly put under threat: by his own conscience, when, owing to a case of mistaken identity, another man is arrested in his place; and by the relentless investigations of the dogged Inspector Javert (Russell Crowe). It is not simply for himself that Valjean must stay free, however, for he has sworn to protect the baby daughter of Fantine (Anne Hathaway), driven to prostitution by poverty. Victor Hugo (1802-85) wrote volumes of criticism, Romantic costume dramas, satirical verse and political journalism but is best remembered for his novels, especially Notre-Dame de Paris (1831), also known as The Hunchback of Notre-Dame and Les Misérables (1862) which was adapted into one of the most successful musicals of all time.

  • Two households, both alike in dignity, In fair Verona, where we lay our scene, From ancient grudge break to new mutiny, Where civil blood makes civil hands unclean.
    From forth the fatal loins of these two foes A pair of star-crossed lovers take their life ;
    Whose misadventured piteous overthrows Doth with their death bury their parents' strife.
    [...] Deux anciennes Maisons d'égale dignité Dans la belle Vérone où se tient notre scène Font un nouvel éclat de leur antique hargne, Le sang civil salit les mains des citoyens.
    Or dans le sein fatal de ces deux ennemis Deux amants prennent vie sous la mauvaise étoile ;
    Leur malheureux écroulement très pitoyable Enterre en leur tombeau la haine des parents.
    /> Les terribles moments de leur amour mortel Et l'obstination des rages familiales Que rien sinon la mort des deux enfants n'apaisera, Pendant deux heures nous le jouerons sur ce théâtre ;
    Et si vous nous prêtez une patiente oreille, Tout défaut, notre zèle le rachètera.

  • "Pierre et Jean" is set in Le Havre in the 1880s and is notable for its evocation of the Normandy coastline captured by the impressionists. But Maupassant's achievement is to have woven from this simple plot in a maritime context an exploration of the complexities at the heart of family life.

  • Jamais, peut-être, socrate ne fut aussi tranquille qu'en cette journée particulière qui s'achève par un arrêt de mort .
    Le procès, banal par certains côtés (ce n'est ni la première ni la dernière fois que l'on aura la peau d'un homme libre), a pour nous valeur de symbole. il est l'un des événements fondateurs de notre identité intellectuelle : il décidera de la vocation philosophique de platon. l'histoire de la pensée occidentale porte la marque de cette césure : il y a l'avant et l'après socrate. chaque fois qu'une communauté tente, par la censure, l'ostracisme ou le meurtre, de réduire au silence un étranger moral ou intellec tuel à l'intérieur de ses murs, de bâillonner ou d'effacer ses interrogations intolérables, elle vit une heure socratique.

  • Anglais Lord Jim

    Joseph Conrad

    Biographical noteJoseph Conrad was born in the Ukraine in 1857 and grew up under Tsarist autocracy. In 1874 Conrad travelled to Marseilles, where he served in French merchant vessels before joining a British ship in 1878 as an apprentice. In 1886 he obtained British nationality. Eight years later he left the sea to devote himself to writing, publishing his first novel, Almayer's Folly, in 1895. The following year he settled in Kent, where he produced within fifteen years such modern classics as Youth, Heart of Darkness, Lord Jim, Typhoon, Nostromo, The Secret Agent and Under Western Eyes. He continued to write until his death in 1924.Allan Simmons is Reader in English Literature at St Mary's College. He is the author of Joseph Conrad (2006) for Palgrave.J.H. Stape is the author of The Several Lives of Joseph Conrad (1996) and Conrad's Notes on Life and Letters (2004). Main descriptionThis compact novel, completed in 1900, as with so many of the great novels of the time, is at its baseline a book of the sea. An English boy in a simple town has dreams bigger than the outdoors and embarks at an early age into the sailor's life. The waters he travels reward him with the ability to explore the human spirit, while Joseph Conrad launches the story into both an exercise of his technical prowess and a delicately crafted picture of a character who reaches the status of a literary hero.
