Lasting Impact

In my opinion, I believe that Victors works in both Poetry and Writing have both made an impact on the world that is still seen today. How do I know this? Well no matter which school you go to or what teacher you have you will study this man for being great at everything including poetry, play writing, and for being a novelist. You may also already know about some of his works like les mis or hunchback of notre dame but may not have just known he was the creator of it.
