Letter: A ‘Les Mis’ correction


Tuesday, May 15, 2018

I suspect that I will not be the only person writing to say that Les Miserables is not set during the French Revolution in 1789, but during the uprising against Louis-Philippe in 1832 (Monitor A&E, May 10). Victor Hugo was 30 at the time and witnessed the events. Also, the first estate was the clergy, the second the nobility and the third the commoners.
