Victor Hugo, the celebrated French author, best known for Les Misérables, was born Victor-Marie Hugo in Besançon, France, on February 26, 1802, to mother Sophie Trébuche and father Joseph-Léopold-Sigisbert Hugo. Hugo studied law from 1915 to 1818, but after being encouraged to do so by his mother, he decided to embark on a literary career. He created a journal in which he published his work and the work of his friends, which he named the Conservateur Litteraire. His first book of poetry, Odes etpoésiesdiverses, was published in 1821, the same year his mother died and he married AdèleFoucher.
He published his first novel in 1823 and published a number of plays after. One of his most well-known works, Notre-Dame de Paris(The Hunchback of Notre Dame), was published in 1831. By the 1840s, he was considered one of the most celebrated literary figures in France, but in 1841, he was elected to the French Academy. He was nominated for the Chamber of Peers, which, along with the accidental drowning of his daughter and her husband, made him take a step back from writing.
However, behind closed doors, he began working on what would go on to become possibly his most famous work: Les Misérables, which he finally published in 1862 to immediate success, making it one of the best-known works of literature from the 19th century. His later works were darker, with a focus on themes like God, Satan, and death. On his 80th birthday in 1882 the street he lived on was renamed Avenue Victor Hugo. In 1883, his mistress Juliette died. Hugo himself died in Paris on May 22, 1885.
