Born in Besancon, France, Victor Hugo was almost an infant prodigy, and at 23, he was one of the official poets of the French monarchy. The period from 1827 to 1842 was one of incredible activity and triumphs in every field for him. In poetry, he published Odes and Ballads (1822-22), The Orientals (1829), Autumn Leaves (1831), Songs of Twilight (1835), Voices of the Innermost (1837) and Rays and Shadows (1840). In the drama Cromwell he composed a masterly doctrinal preface (1827). He lay in state under the Arch of Triumph, and the Pantheon was reopened to receive his remains.
