Overview

The Hunchback of Notre-Dame is a novel by Victor Hugo first published in 1831. The title refers to the Notre Dame Cathedral in Paris, on which the story is centered.

The story begins on Epiphany (6 January), 1482, the day of the Feast of Fools in Paris, France. Quasimodo, a deformed hunchback who is the bell-ringer of Notre Dame, is introduced by his crowning as the Pope of Fools.

This book is not just about an ugly hunchback that stalks the dark towers of Notre Dame. It is more, much more.

It is about the Cathedral of Notre Dame and how the lives of some random strangers are connected together in an intricate web of love, hate and despair. It is about the curse of love and how it comes to consume us and destroy us and elevate us and beautify us. It is about the power of the printed word and the transformation of human communication and expression. It is, as all books most certainly are in some small way, about life.
