NEW BOOK: Capital Letters: Hugo, Baudelaire, Camus and the Death Penalty

Professor Ève Morisi’s latest monograph, Capital Letters: Hugo, Baudelaire, Camus and the Death Penalty, was recently published by Northwestern University Press.

 

Capital Letters sheds new light on how literature has dealt with society’s most violent legal institution, the death penalty. It investigates this question through the works of three major French authors with markedly distinct political convictions and literary styles: Victor Hugo, Charles Baudelaire, and Albert Camus.
