It tells the story of the beautiful gypsy Esmeralda, condemned as a witch by the tormented archdeacon Claude Frollo, who lusts after her. Before the huge crowd that packed the cathedral square, La Esmeralda stood between two executioners.
Suddenly Quasimodo, the hunchback of Notre Dame, rushed at the executioners and felled them with his enormous fists. He snatched the gypsy girl in one arm and ran with her into the church. A moment later he appeared at the top of the bell tower.
Holding the girl above his head, he showed her triumphantly to all of Paris while his thunderous voice roared savagely to the sky: Falsely accused of trying to murder Phoebus, who attempts to rape her, Esmeralda is sentenced to death and rescued from the gallows by Quasimodo who defends her to the last.
The subject of many adaptations for stage and screen, this remains perhaps one of the most romantic yet gripping stories ever told. The Hunchback of Notre-Dame is an epic of a whole people, with a cast of characters that ranges from the king of France to the beggars who inhabit the Parisian sewers, and at their center the massive figure—a character in itself—of the great Cathedral of Notre-Dame.
Quasimodo, the deformed bell-ringer of the cathedral; his foster father, the tormented archdeacon Frollo; and the beautiful and doomed Gypsy Esmeralda are caught up in a tragedy that still speaks clearly to us of revolution and social strife, of destiny and free will, and of love and loss. It has tempted filmmakers, and most recently animators, who have exploited its dramatic content to good effect but have inevitably lost some of the grays that make the original text so compelling.
Hugo set his epic tale in the Paris of under Louis XI and meticulously re-created the day-to-day life of its highest and lowest inhabitants. He made the cathedral the centerpiece of the novel and called it Notre-Dame de Paris. It received its popular English title at the time of its second translation in Hugo wrote that his inspiration came from a carving of the word "fatality" in Greek that he had found in the cathedral.
