Post-Enlightenment Morality (Les Mis)

This unit is concerned with the idea of revolution. You will read literature concurrent with revolution in various Western European nations and discover how a tempestuous climate impacts literature and nonfiction of the time period.  Our main text for the unit will be Hugo's Les Miserables.  The required version of Les Mis is Robinson's abridgment, but Porter's abridgment may be read for extra credit.
