August Poetry Circle: Victor Hugo (1802 – 1885)
August 11, 6:30PM to 8PM
We seldom find an example of a writer who mastered as many forms, and who gave the world as many remarkable works as the great French writer Victor Hugo. In his lifetime, he not only gained recognition as a poet, novelist and playwright, but also as an intellectuel engagé. He was a writer very much involved in the social and political issues and disputes of his time. He gained the reputation as a poetic virtuoso at an early age. In his poetry, Hugo used a great variety of styles and addressed many subjects. He wrote about everything, from love poems to forceful poems of political protest, and to poems that express the profound grief he felt at the loss of loved ones. Poetry Circle friends Ariane and Mark will lead the discussion.
