Journal Entry 1 by ShadZ from Lakewood, Colorado USA on Tuesday, November 14, 2023
"Through The Hunchback of Notre-Dame is an encyclopedic reconstruction of 15th-century Paris, the book has become part of our collective mythology because of its wonderful storytelling and unforgettable characters.
"There is the powerful but hideously misshapen Quasimodo, who is abandoned as an infant in the church of Notre-Dame. The one-eyed, deaf monster is feared and mocked by the people of Paris, but Hugo portrays him as a sympathetic, if tragic, figure. Then there is the man who adopts Quasimodo, Archdeacon Dom Claude Frollo, whose superior intellect is in sharp contrast to his desiccated soul.
"At the heart of the story is the sweet, beautiful gypsy girl, La Esmeralda, whose guileless charm draws Quasimodo, Frollo, and the brutish Captain Phoebus into a frightening chain of events that threatens to convulse the entire city of Paris."
