Re-Reading Les Misérables

Thoughts and commentary on Victor Hugo’s masterpiece.

Moonlight and Darkened Street Lamps

Moon and darkened streetlight

The sky was darkening, but the lights in the parking lot hadn’t turned on yet. Adding the bright moon reminded me of the chase through the streets of Paris. Jean Valjean is able to elude Javert as long as he can because the city street lamps had been left unlit that night on account of the moonlight.
