Victor Hugo (1802-1885) was a French writer, poet, and statesman, widely considered one of the greatest French literary figures of the 19th century. He was born in Besançon, France, and began writing poetry and plays at a young age. He gained fame in the 1830s with his play "Cromwell" and his novel "Notre-Dame de Paris" (The Hunchback of Notre-Dame). He continued to write and publish throughout his life, producing a large body of work that includes novels, poetry, plays, and essays. He was also a political figure, serving as a Member of Parliament and later as a Senator during the Second French Empire. He was exiled for a period of time due to his criticism of Napoleon III. He returned to France after the fall of the Empire, and was elected to the National Assembly and the Senate again. He died in Paris in 1885, and his funeral was attended by thousands of people. Victor Hugo is considered one of the most important figures of French literature.
