Here is one of the most famous characters in the world literature - Jean Valjean - a noble peasant, sent to hard labor for a stolen loaf of bread. Les Miserables is one of the greatest novels in all of the world literature. Victor Hugo immerses the reader in the labyrinths of the Parisian bottom, leads him to the battle of good and evil, brings to the revolutionary barricades. This dramatic story captures the mind and soul: crime and punishment, the relentless and inhuman persecution of Jean Valjean by Inspector Javer, the desperation of the prostitute Fatina, the immorality of Tenardier. Hugo paints his canvas of French life of epic proportions, plays an extravagant performance that amazes with its classic splendor and leaves an eternal seal in the souls of readers.
The novel takes place in the English province of the late 19th century. In the story in the Blackmore Valley lives the Darbaifield family. Once the head of the family, Jack, accidentally learns that their family is all that is left of the ancient chivalrous family d'Erberville, leading his family from Sir Pagan d'Erberville, "that came from Normandy with William the Conqueror."
David Herbert Lawrence's last and most famous novel, Lady Chatterley's Lover, was published in 1928 and is immediately banned in the UK and the US as pornographic. The novel was rehabilitated during the trial in 1960. Its re-publishing again caused a furore and caused conflicting responses. The novel is remembered by the skill of lyrical prose and vivid history, immersing the reader in an ocean of sensual relations between a married, young and full of strength aristocrat, forced to hide his sensuality because of the paralysis of her husband, who was seriously injured during the First World War; and a ranger working on their estate. Such a triumph of sensuality and eroticism, liberating a person, making him free, is relevant in our time, when virtual relationships replace the relationship real.
