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!)

I promised to once again link to the fable of The Wolf and the Dog, here, La Fontaine's version in French, which Hugo would likely have known best, and here, Aesop's version, translated into English.

And here is the full text of "Souvenir de la nuit du 4." The text is here in French first, and, although translating poetry is always a tricky business, this same page also offers an English translation of the poem, if you scroll down.
