    Read through Victor Hugo by Théophile Gautier.Les burgraves sont des seigneurs du Rhin. Job, sage centenaire, est entouré par ses fils, petit-fils et arrière-petit-fils tyranniques et sans scrupules. Lui-même n'a pas un passé sans taches et des personnages présumés morts depuis longtemps, la sorcière Guanhumara et l'empereur Frédéric Barberousse, vont surgir dans le burg médiéval pour le tourmenter.Balzac considérait Les Burgraves comme une œuvre de premier ordre et il la soutint énergiquement. Tout comme Hugo avait soutenu Vautrin, en 1840 de Balzac, alors que cette dernière pièce avait été interdite dès la première représentation.Even if this book belongs to the public domain, it wasn't proofreaded yet.Free download in English available at HathiTrust.Free download in French available at HathiTrust.

    It's very much like reading the story of Verdi's Trovatore but written in that wonderfully dignified French blank verse, featuring old Emperor Frederick I and the German robbing barons and with a couple of extra *gasp* (alternatively *moan*) moments as the story unfolds and everybody turns out to be the lost son/brother/girlfriend/father/ emperor, etc. Poor Victor Hugo intended it as a dramatic reflection on the corruption and decadence of power through the generations, but though not on purpose it is actually terrific fun to read as a product of the Romantic Age. It's a shame nobody put music to it.
