This file includes: Notre-Dame de Paris (The Hunchback of Notre Dame), The Man Who Laughs, Les Miserables, The History of a Crime, The Memoirs of Victor Hugo, and Poems. According to Wikipedia: Victor-Marie Hugo(26 February 1802 - 22 May 1885) was a French poet, playwright, novelist, essayist, visual artist, statesman, human rights activist and exponent of the Romantic movement in France. In France, Hugos literary fame comes first from his poetry but also rests upon his novels and his dramatic achievements. Among many volumes of poetry, Les Contemplations and La Légende des siècles stand particularly high in critical esteem, and Hugo is sometimes identified as the greatest French poet. Outside France, his best-known works are the novels Les Misérables and Notre-Dame de Paris (known in English also as The Hunchback of Notre Dame). Though a committed conservative royalist when he was young, Hugo grew more liberal as the decades passed; he became a passionate supporter of republicanism, and his work touches upon most of the political and social issues and artistic trends of his time. He is buried in the Panthéon.
This file includes the novels Dead Souls and Taras Bulba, the play The Inspector General, and two collections of stories. The stories are: St. Johns Eve, The Cloak (AKA The Mantle), How the Two Ivans Quarrelled, The Mysterious Portrait, The Calash, The Nose, Memoirs of a Madman, A May Night, and The Viy. According to Wikipedia: Nikolai Vasilievich Gogol (31 March 1809 - 4 March 1852) was a Ukrainian-born Russian humorist, dramatist, and novelist. He is considered the father of modern Russian Realism, but, at the same time, his work is very much in the genre of Romanticism. His early works, such as Evenings on a Farm Near Dikanka, were heavily influenced by Ukrainian culture and folklore. His more mature writing satirised political corruption in the Russian Empire, leading to his exile. After briefly flirting with conversion to Roman Catholicism while in Italy, on his return to Russia Gogol immersed himself in the Russian Orthodox Church. The novels Taras Bulba (1835; 1842 [revised edition]) and Dead Souls (1842), the play The Government Inspector (1836, 1842), and the short stories Diary of a Madman, The Nose, and The Overcoat (1842) are among his best-known works. With their scrupulous and scathing realism, ethical criticism, as well as philosophical depth, they remain some of the most important works ever written.
