Overview

"Napoleon the Little" is a fascinating biographical analysis of the life and deeds of Napoleon III written by Victor Hugo. Napoleon I's nephew imposed censorship and harsh repressive measures against his opponents, and many people - including Victor Hugo - went into voluntary exile. Hugo wrote this book as an attempt to awaken his fellow citizens to the dangers they faced under the tyranny of Napoleon III. It is a fascinating insight into the life of France's longest-serving French head of state since the French Revolution and not to be missed by fans of Hugo's work. Contents include: "December 20, 1848", "Mission of the Representatives", "Notice of Expiration of Term", "Men Will Awaken", "Biography", "Portrait", "In Continuation of the Panegyrics", "The Constitution", "The Senate", et cetera. Victor Marie Hugo (1802 - 1885) was a French novelist, dramatist, and poet belonging to the Romantic movement. He is widely hailed as one of the most accomplished and well-known French writers, originally achieving renown for his poetical endeavours-the most notable of which are the volumes "Les Contemplations" and "La Légende des siècles". Outside of his native country, Hugo's best-known works are his novels: "Les Misérables" (1862) and "Notre-Dame de Paris" (1831). Many vintage books such as this are becoming increasingly scarce and expensive. We are republishing this book now in an affordable, high-quality, modern edition complete with a specially commissioned new biography of the author.
