“Nothing is more curious than the almost savage hostility that humor excites in those who lack it.”
George Saintsbury

“Nothing is more curious than the almost savage hostility that humour excites in those who lack it.”
George Saintsbury

“The gamin Gavroche puts in a strong plea for mercy, and his sister Eponine, if Hugo had chosen to take more trouble with her, might have been a great, and is actually the most interesting, character. But Cosette—the cosseted Cosette—Hugo did not know our word or he would have seen the danger—is merely a pretty and rather selfish little doll, and her precious lover Marius is almost ineffable.”
George Saintsbury
