The Old Time Radio Show Collection Adapted for radio by Orson Welles Victor Hugo wrote in his classic Les Misérables, Book 5, Chapter 4: "God is behind everything, but everything hides God." Hugo's immortal classic, an epic story of redemption set in Paris after the French Revolution, clearly illustrates the saving grace of God, and the change that can be had for anyone willing to accept it. This 1937 radio dramatization was written, produced, and performed by none other than the incomparable Orson Welles of War of the Worlds fame. The story of the book is faithfully retold (with questionable subjects carefully camouflaged) and is suitable for students aged ten and older. This live recording, masterfully performed by an incredible professional cast, includes sound effects, music, and an unforgettable story.Show more
Victor Hugo is one of the best-known French writers, and is part of the greatest literary figures of all time. His poetry made him famous very early, cementing his reputation as one of the greatest lyric poets when he was only 20 years old. He was also a novelist and a dramatist, and furthered the cause of Romanticism, this exalted artistic movement which toyed with Sublime and soared on the winds of emotion. The high-achieving poet was also actively involved in politics, defending the poor until his last breath; he was even forced into exile, from which he kept on writing, beloved by the masses he stood up for. When he died, it was an intense day of mourning in France, and more than two million people joined his funeral procession to the Panthéon. Today, most large towns in France have at least a street named after him. We have selected for you 100 of his most intense and profound quotes, for you to enjoy his passion and the rhythm of his style.Show more
