When Hugo's lover complained of having nothing to do in her apartment of a few square yards where he cloisters her, he tells her to "write to me, Write me everything that comes into your head, everything that causes your heart to beat". So she does--they are notes, scribbles, cast in a corner and read and secured by Hugo at each of his visits. This is a volume of those notes and scribbles--and more. xiii, 318 pages. 6 x 9 inches.
