100 Pictures Challenge #5: Seeking Solace.
In these hours of waiting what did they do? [...] (They) sought each other out and got together, as in the most peaceful days of their student conversations, and in a corner of this bistro turned into a pill box, within two steps of the redoubt they had thrown up, their carbines primed and loaded resting on the backs of their chairs, these gallant young men, so near their last hour, began to recite a love poem.
Les Miserables, Volume 4, Book 11, Chapter 6
Continuing my quest to illustrate the hell out of the barricade chapters. Because Bayard & Co. have done a wonderful job just about everywhere else, but have all but neglected the insurrection bits.
Title is taken from the first line of their love poem, "Vous rappelez-vous notre douce vie" (Do you remember our sweet life). Because the title bar won't let me type the entire line.
Apologies for inflicting more of this crap upon my non-Les Mis viewers. Les Miserables
written by Victor Hugo.
