Summary Exhibition catalogue for Victor Hugo: Les Misérables - From Page to Stage, on show at the State Library of Victoria from 18 July to 9 November 2014. This illuminating book is a lasting souvenir of an unforgettable exhibition. Celebrates the evolution of Les Misérables from one of the greatest international novels of the 19th century into one of the most successful and beloved stage musicals of all time. With insightful contributions by the exhibition curators, scholars and critics, this book explores the political and social context of the novel, delves into its many adaptations since publication in 1862, and traces the development of the Boublil and Schönberg Les Misérables musical theatre phenomenon. It shines a light on the life, work and enduring legacy of Victor Hugo, and includes images of Hugo's original handwritten manuscript. Beautifully illustrated throughout with rare works from the vast collections of the Bibliothèque nationale de France, Maison de Victor Hugo, Maison Littéraire de Victor Hugo, Musée Carnavalet, Musée Rodin, the Cameron Mackintosh Archive and the State Library of Victoria, this book is an essential guide to the novel's journey from page to stage.
