It is 1793 in France, the year of the guillotine. Already, Louis XVI has been sentenced to the scaffold, and Terror reigns. The architects of the Revolution (Marat, Danton, and Robespierre) have set up the Convention, an embryo parliament, designed to stem social chaos. But ideals topple in the face of political necessity, alliances founder, and intrigue is a way of life.
In Ninety-Three, Victor Hugo's inspired last novel, that tumultuous year's events are woven into an epic masterpiece that brilliantly captures the moment that shaped the destiny not only of France but of all European monarchies.
"The book is full of pregnant and splendid sayings. There are scenes of inimitable workmanship.
Ninety-Three is equal to anything that Hugo has ever written." (Robert Louis Stevenson)
"One of the loftiest achievements of Hugo's genius." ( Saturday Review)
