The Hunchback of Notre Dame
or, Notre Dame de Paris
by Victor Hugo
Esmeralda is a beautiful gypsy woman who captures the heart of many men including Quasimodo, the titular hunchback who lives in secret at Notre Dame. Saved by Esmeralda’s kindness, Quasimodo falls in love and sets out to save her from the clutches of those who mean to harm her, including his deceptive adoptive father, Archdeacon Claude Frollo.
Originally written as a means of highlighting the value of Gothic architecture, The Hunchback of Notre Dame or Notre Dame de Paris was also one of the first novels to feature lower caste protagonists. The Hunchback of Notre Dame has been translated into English many times and has been adapted into plays, and feature-length films, including the 1996 Disney animated feature of the same name.
