In this new introduction by Bradley Stephens (literary scholar at the University of Bristol), the ongoing modern relevance of Hugo's classic gothic novel is explored in terms of its cinematic and political elements. This introduction forms part of a striking new package for Walter J. Cobb's translation, with an afterword by Graham Robb, leading scholar of 19th-century French literature.
