what street is the barricade in Les Mis built on?  is it the Rue St. Denis??

For this and other location-related questions the standard authority is @vapaus-ystavyys-tasaarvo. Their locations tag is a goldmine if you want to find out where a thing is. They Care about maps. ❤

Yeees o/

I’m super sleepy right now but I can give you a link to my earlier post:

http://vapaus-ystavyys-tasaarvo.tumblr.com/post/143703621299/les-mis-locations-the-barricade-the-corinthe

It IS a bit confusing how Hugo talks about Rue Saint-Denis like it’s the location of the barricade but I assume it has something to do with how Rue Saint-Denis was an actual big important street while Rue de la Chanvrerie was not. At all. It was small and short and cramped and dirty and mostly unimportant and full of poor people. So I guess it’s easier to refer to it as an extension or a branch of Rue Saint-Denis…? or something like that. Point being that it makes for a better book title (”the epic on the Saint-Denis Street” sounds better than “the epic on the Hemp Market Street”) Idk, I might not be making a lot of sense right now though.

Or possibly there’s a symbolic reason that I don’t know. It might also be a way to mirror the fictional barricade of the Rue de la Chanvrerie with the famous real life barricades of Saint-Merry on the Rue Saint-Martin (which are kind of the opposite: they were on the bigger street but named after the smaller streets of Rue Saint-Merry, Rue Aubry-le-Boucher and Rue Maubuée.) I mean mostly just the similar Saint- theme here. Saint-Merry, Saint-Martin… Saint-Denis. Also the streets Saint-Martin and Saint-Denis parallel each other nicely. Hugo himself wrote about that in Notre Dame de Paris:

One immediately perceived two long parallel streets, unbroken, undisturbed, traversing, almost in a straight line, all three cities, from one end to the other; from North to South, perpendicularly, to the Seine, which bound them together, mingled them, infused them in each other, poured and transfused the people incessantly, from one to the other, and made one out of the three. The first of these streets ran from the Porte Saint-Martin: it was called the Rue Saint-Jacques in the University, Rue de la Juiverie in the City, Rue Saint-Martin in the Town; it crossed the water twice, under the name of the Petit Pont and the Pont Notre- Dame. The second, which was called the Rue de la Harpe on the left bank, Rue de la Barillerié in the island, Rue Saint- Denis on the right bank, Pont Saint-Michel on one arm of the Seine, Pont au Change on the other, ran from the Porte Saint-Michel in the University, to the Porte Saint-Denis in the Town. However, under all these names, there were but two streets, parent streets, generating streets,–the two arteries of Paris. All the other veins of the triple city either derived their supply from them or emptied into them.

So yeah, these two streets are very much twins. So that might be the reason. Another thing, also mentioned here, is that the Café Musain was at the corner of Rue de la Harpe and Rue des Grès, so technically, according to Hugo’s own description, on the same street that Rue Saint-Denis was a part of. So that would link Musain and Corinthe in a way and maybe emphasize both their connection and their differences.

… But of course I might be stretching it here with the Musain thing. I don’t know if this was Hugo’s point. But then again he was obviously very conscious of this city structure himself. (I mean I do think the parallels between Saint-Denis and Saint-Martin/Saint-Merry are deliberate though. I’d be surprised if they weren’t.)

May 21st 1871: Bloody Week begins

On this day in 1871 French troops marched on the Paris Commune and began fighting the revolutionaries there. The Commune took power in opposition to the conservative royalist National Assembly which was elected in February 1871; republican Parisians feared the Assembly would restore the monarchy. When officials of Adolphe Thiers’s government tried to remove the cannons of the city’s guards on March 18th the Commune seized power and were later elected on March 26th. The Commune enacted socialist policies such as ending support of religion and promoting female suffrage; they adopted a plain red flag as the flag of the Commune. Communard soldiers killed two French troops and refused to stand down, prompting the attack on the Commune by French forces who entered through an undefended area. The Commune was brutally repressed by the national government during the street fighting of ‘Bloody Week’, with around 20,000 insurrectionists being killed before the Commune fell on May 28th. The government treated the surviving Communards and their supporters ruthlessly – arresting around 38,000 and deporting around 7,000.
