About this title

Synopsis:

My Beloved Toto, a collection of letters written by Juliette Drouet to her lover, Victor Hugo, tells the story of a life and of the great love affair that shaped it. From 1833 until her death half a century later, Drouet wrote to Hugo twice daily on average, resulting in thousands of letters. The 186 translated here--most appearing in English for the first time--offer insights into nineteenth-century French culture as well as an insider's look at the character, behavior, working habits, and day-to-day life of France's most monumental man of letters.

Review:

"Written from the body and soul, Juliette Drouet's love letters to Victor Hugo, spanning some fifty years but written in and for the moment, are engaging bits of ecriture feminine. Filled with wordplay and allusion to contemporary events both personal and public, these texts present formidable translation problems expertly contextualized by the translator in her introduction, notes, and glossary."
