Victor Hugo (1802-1885) was a French poet, novelist, and dramatist. In his early life, Hugo trained to be a lawyer. He found disinterest in this lifestyle, and instead pursued a literary career. Hugo would write many poems and novels throughout his life. The first major thing Hugo wrote was The Hunchback of Notre Dame, which is well known for its Disney adaptation. Les Miserables would also become one of the most popular books Hugo would ever write, being over 1,000 pages long. Les Miserables would inspire many musical and movie adaptations.
