I delivered a paper entitled 'Hugo's "Quatrevingt-treize" (1874) and the European Body Politic'. While readings of Hugo’s final novel have tended to concentrate upon the writer’s contentious attempts to rehabilitate French fraternal sentiment in the wake of the Commune’s semaine sanglante, the broader context of the Franco-Prussian War and of Hugo’s belief in European solidarity casts such analysis in a yet more telling light.
