This Les Misérables poster is created using the text from Book 1 & 2 from the book.
The striking passages of Victor Hugo’s Les Misérables are used to form a sensational work of art. Above the prostrating figure of Jean Valjean is the benevolent face of Bishop Myriel, a kind man who believes unwaveringly in the possibility of atonement for Valjean; and to the left is the stern and unforgiving face of Javert, a man who doesn’t believe in the prospect of redemption from a vile nature. This work of art shows Jean Valjean on his hands and knees before two candlesticks symbolizing the internal battle being waged between his malevolent past – as represented by Javert, and his deeply buried virtuous self – as represented by Bishop Myriel. The resolution of this internal battle is not an easy one and this illustration reveals this conflict with a dynamic alacrity which brings the soul and spirit of Les Misérables alive.
An unparalleled work in its breadth and scope, Victor Hugo’s Les Misérables stands as one of the greatest works of the 19th century, and this artistic print captures the concept of resurrection from death to life with a sweeping vivacity worthy of this great rhetoric.
