- The Bishop!
I'm re-reading Les Misérables after 20 years, and providing running commentary. The book opens with Part 1: Fantine...which starts with the Bishop.
- Part 2…4601
My re-read continues, as the Bishop learns a lesson about nobility, and an ex-con named Jean Valjean has a life-changing experience. 118 pages and counting.
- Second Chances
The offering of a second chance, and acceptance/refusal of said chance, happens repeatedly in Les Misérables.
- Valjean and the Bishop
The Bishop's kindness doesn't trigger an instant conversion. It sets the stage by convincing Jean Valjean that change is _possible_.
