As a result, the painting of a negated representation contained within a painted representation of that same object necessarily appeals to a subjective and not objective desire to comprehend Magritte’s intent....
F 489: “We do notask wether Galen said anything worth saying, but whether he said thusor otherwise”; VS II 12 540a: “On ne demande pas si Galena rien dit qui vaille, mais s'il a dit ainsi ou autrement.”
The reader may accordingly wish to approach the book, with its division into galleries and movements, as the equivalent of an ample but necessarily limited museum, with a display of art that suggests, always, more than it can actually reveal.
Similarly, the same theme also emerges when Valjean begins the process of acquiring Cosette, he gives her a doll and she looks at it as if “someone had suddenly said to her: Little girl, you are the queen of France” (341).
That impression continued through theatrical productions and most recently the musical, but the book contains greater detail and adds a deeper understanding of Hugo's epic story than the movie or musical portray.

The British Government hopes that the Queen of Spain may live many years to enjoy along and prosperous reign, and wishes that her approaching marriage may be blessed with anample succession to the Spanish, Crown; but the uncertainty of human affairs renders itnecessary to contemplate the possibility that the Crown of Spain might devolve upon theInfanta.
If this should happen, the Infanta being married to the Duke of Montpensier, thatPrince would be placed in that very position of consort to the Queen of Spain which theKing of the French, three or four years ago, himself, as 1 have before stated, practicallyacknowledged that no son of his ought to occupy, and thus, in consequence of such amarriage, that event, which the King of the French declined to arrive at by direct means,might by indirect means be brought to pass; and it appears to Her Majesty's Governmentthat good faith requires that what has been relinquished in one way, should not be soughtafter in another
Ce recueil contient cinq séries, 1- A Short Story of Israel ;Notes and Glosses, 2- Autobiography : New York, 3- Autobiography : Hollywood, 4- Testimony, dont la note paratextuelle indique : « Based on cases in the Law reports », et 5- Kaddish : « A portion of the ritual of the synagogue recited by mourners ».
But if the line of Queen Isabella were to fail, and if there should at the same timeexist issue of the marriage of the Infanta with the Duke of Montpensier, a seriousquestion might arise. Respecting the succession, to the Spanish Crown. For it is perfectlyclear that, by virtue of the renounciation, made at the peace of Utrecht by the Duke ofOrleans of that day, all his Descendants male and female from that time, and for ever, areexcluded, disabled and incapacitated from succeeding to the throne of Spain in what mannersoever the succession might fall to their Line and therefore the children and descendantsof the Duke of Montpensier would, in consequence thereof, be excluded from succeeding tothe Spanish Crown. But however plain the Words, and however positive the effect of thatrenunciation must be acknowledged to be, the children or descendants of this marriagemight endeavour to set up a claim in virtue of the rights which they to have inheritedfrom the Infanta, and thus, unless all pretence for doubt, on this point were at onceremoved by some valid act of the Infanta for herself and her descendants, the stipulationsof the Treaty of Utrecht might be set aside by an evasion, and the peace or Europe mightbe disturbed by another War on account of the succession to the Throne of Spain.
Her Majesty's Government can scarcely believe that a Government so anxious as that ofFrance has professed itself to be, to respect the tranquillity of neighbouring States, andto preserve the peace of Europe, can insist upon the completion of a marriage whichthreatens immediate danger to the one, and, is calculated to place in serious jeopardy theother.
Valijean makes many escape attempts from jail, and comes in contact with many different characters, including Javert, the police officer who is desperately trying to catch him, as well as Fantine, the mother of a young girl named Cosette, who Valijean eventually adopts as his own daughter.
