Claude GueuxBook - 1823
Published in 1834, Claude Gueux is considered one of the earliest examples of "true crime" fiction and features a rare look into Hugo's early beliefs about social reform and injustice that he would later reveal thoroughly in Les Miserables nearly 30 years later. This volume also includes Hans of Iceland and Bug-Jargal.
