Les Miserables Study Guide

Written to accompany the abridged 1982 English translation of French author Victor Hugo’s epic novel, this literature study guide by Sabrina Justison helps you get the most out of Les Miserables. 

Literature study guides from 7Sisters Homeschool inspire students rather than tire them with busywork that kills the story.

While you may choose any version of Les Miserables, it will be easiest to follow the questions with the same abridged version used in creating the guide.  This study guide was created using the following ABRIDGED version of the novel by French author Victor Hugo:

  • Fawcett – Ballantine Books, New York. 1982 Edition.
  • Translation by Charles E. Wilbour. Abridged with an introduction by James K. Robinson, University of Cincinnati. © 1961
  • ISBN 0-449-30002-1

The guide includes summaries of the sections of text removed from the abridged version so that important plot elements are not lost in the story.

Instead of attempting to examine every element of a book on the first reading, our study guides choose two or three respected literary devices and use them as a focal point.

Our guides are easy to adapt for use at an:
