precious characters we should appreciate more {cosette}

She gave anyone who saw her a sensation of April and of dawn. There was dew in her eyes. Cosette was a condensation of auroral light in womanly form.

villainyandgoodcheekbones:

In which “class struggle” becomes remarkably literal.

Wrong emphasis. This is one of the reasons I find the line “cut the fat ones down to size” in the musical so problematic - it’s antithetical to what Enjolras is about.
There were republicans and socialists of this strain at the time - Blanqui, for example, wrote in terms of almost neo-Marxist class struggle. Enjolras, however, is not about razing the rich to the ground - his emphasis is quite different. He wants to elevate rather than level. His “View from a Barricade” speech contains a wonderful analogy that explains how his vision does not involve a forest of stunted oaks and tree-high blades of grass (i.e. people will be not either held back from their full potential or inflated in the name of “equality”), but rather an equal opportunity to see their full potential.
What he wants is not to punch rich people in the face, but to extend the ideals of the enlightenment to all and to address pressing social problems. If he must fight the representatives of the monarchy, the aristocracy and bourgeoisie to do it he will, but he’s not going to gloat about it and it is not an end in and of itself. Even if they are not his friends, he still regards them as his brothers.

Christine Daaé

"That is a pledge that I do not ask of you, and it is a promise that I shall not make you!" spoke the young woman proudly. "I am a free agent, monsieur de Chagny; you have no right to control my actions and I will ask that you desist henceforth. As for what I have done during the past fortnight, there is only one man in the world who would have the right to demand that I give him an account: my husband! Well, I have no husband, and I shall never marry!

- Gaston Leroux’s The Phantom of the Opera
