Hunchback of Notre Dame, The Summary

Hunchback of Notre Dame, The by Victor Hugo

In a brilliant reworking of the tale of Beauty and the Beast, Hugo creates a host of unforgettable characters ? amongst them, Quasimodo, the hunchback of the title, hopelessly in love with the gypsy girl Esmeralda, the satanic priest Claude Frollo, Clopin Trouillefou, king of the beggars, and Louis X1, King of France. Over the entire novel, both literally and symbolically, broods the Cathedral of Notre-Dame.
