Biography

Victor Hugo, arguably France’s greatest literary body, wrote poetry, has, and books with equal service, even though his books (including Notre Dame de Paris [aka The Hunchback of Notre Dame] and Les Misérables) are his most influential functions today, his functions in all 3 styles have inspired composers of not only classical, but popular music. Through the Intimate era, there is hardly an individual French composer who didn’t established at least among Hugo’s functions, few Italian opera composers who didn’t a minimum of consider one of is own plays, even though his impact was most powerful in those two countries, it had been also felt world-wide. His composing also acquired a profound effect on various other writers, contacting for a finish towards the neo-Classicism that acquired dominated French books, especially its deliberate style and restraint in appearance and selection of topics, introducing “orientalist” affects, and insisting on juxtaposing laughter and tragedy, along with the unappealing and the stunning. (This focus on independence discovered particular resonance in Giuseppe Verdi and sparked many of his wars with censorship in Italy, especially over Rigoletto, predicated on Le roi s’amuse.) Though his afterwards composing specifically, he tended to end up being sentimental and moralizing, his trailblazing pass on Romanticism throughout European countries, and his humanism motivated Tolstoy. Despite his populism, he was well alert to his popularity and influence rather than modest about any of it; for instance, he announced that the town ought to be renamed Hugo in his honor. His composing brought him early popularity, earning him account within the Legion of Honor at age 23 and regular membership in the exclusive Academie Française at 39. He was also questionable from an early on age group; the premiere of his perform Hernani in 1830 in fact sparked brawls and riots. Like Beethoven, Hugo was initially deeply influenced by Napoleon and later on, deeply disillusioned; he was actually exiled from France in 1851 for his extremely vocal criticism of and opposition to Napoleon III. In 1870, he came back to Paris, where he was lionized by both politics and literary circles.
