"The message could be delivered by any present-day liberal, about any extreme punishment." -- Amnesty International

A man vilified by society and condemned to death for his crime wakes every morning knowing that this day might be his last. Graphically detailed, this first-person chronicle describes both the prisoner's wretched environment and his thoughts, reminiscences, and despair at his impending doom. This edition also includes the companion pieces "A Comedy about a Tragedy" and "Claude Gueux," a real-life account of an executed criminal in France.

About the Author

Victor Hugo (1802-1885) was a French writer, and probably the foremost Romantic writer in his home country. In France, he is most highly regarded for his poetry and dramatic works, whereas abroad he is best known for his novels Les Miserables and The Hunchback of Notre-Dame.
