Preview Mode Links will not work in preview mode

Welcome to the website for "The Les Misérables Reading Companion," where you'll find all the episodes of this podcast about Victor Hugo's Les Misérables, plus extras relating to what I've discussed there. 

This page is a work in progress. Come back early and often for updates!

The comment function on this page was giving us trouble--comments disappearing, that sort of thing--so I've shut it off...

BUT DON'T BE DISCOURAGED! You can share your thoughts about the book on Facebook or Twitter at the links below.

I still very much look forward to reading your comments! (Unless you're a troll; I will exercise ruthless editorial authority when it comes to trolls!)


Episode 26 extras

Not a ton in the way of visual extras today, but perhaps you'd like to peruse what Marius was reading?

Here's an idea of what Le Moniteur would have looked like. Marius was likely reading later editions as well, but a full archive does not seem to be digitized. This is an issue from January 1799.

Here's an example of a Bulletin de la Grande Armée. This is the first one, from 1805.

Here is the Mémorial de Sainte-Hélène. It was published in multiple volumes; this is the link to volume 1.
