    The brims are generally flattened at the sides, swelling above the front, and turned up behind in order to make room for the hair, which would not find room whereon to lodge if the precaution were not taken, here and there, to punch out what is called a brim of what is called a bonnet. Yeah, I like her. Since slaves were expected to perform working task they were often given bonnets of a traditional European maid style. Cosette, meanwhile, is mistreated by the foster family who agree to take care of her while Fantine "works" in the nearby town.

    So, the main plot line of this story is about the ex-convict, Jean Valjean, who has been released from prison after serving nineteen years for stealing a loaf of bread and then trying to escape. She has been toughened by life, made ugly by poverty, and she is ferociously independent. This book also chronicles the events leading up to and including the Paris uprising of and the novel includes themes of revolution. With hairstyles becoming increasingly elaborate afterthe calash was worn outdoors to protect the hair from wind and weather: a hood of silk stiffened with whalebone or arched cane battens, collapsible like a fan or the calash top of a carriage, they were fitted with ribbons to allow them to be held secure in a gale. In addition, women in wedlock would wear caps and bonnets during the day.

    Another is the story of Fantine and her illegitimate daughter - Cosette. From Waterloo, more structured fashionable bonnets made by milliners rapidly grew larger. In the s it might be crimped at the top to frame the face in a heart shape. I find it hard to dismiss Hugo's observations of the treatment of those who are poor and unintelligent as anything other than criticisms of society.

It seems wrong to try and simplify the amazing plot of Les Miserables but I have to somehow fit all that greatness into this little review space.
