Final Assignment:OLIVER TWIST

The End

L'action se déroule en France au cours de la première moitié du xixe siècle, encadrée par les deux grands combats que sont la Bataille de Waterloo (1815) et les émeutes de juin 1832. On y suit, pendant cinq tomes, la vie de Jean Valjean, de sa sortie du bagne jusqu'à sa mort. Autour de lui gravitent les personnages dont certains vont donner leur nom aux différents tomes du roman, témoins de la misère de ce siècle, misérables eux-mêmes ou proches de la misère : Fantine, Cosette, Marius, mais aussi les Thénardier (dont Éponine, Azelma et Gavroche) ainsi que le représentant de la loi Javert.
