    Summary

    The Duke of Otranto had two protégés: one, a police spy; the other, a promising future Deputy. The lessons these men learned under his tutelage — none more during the Hundred Days, when the Republic hung on a knife’s edge of war and politics — left the one greater, the other more guilty.

    Summary

    "The Abbe Gudin said he'd have to roam round two months as a ghost before he could come to life. We saw him pass us, — he was pale, he was cold, he was thin, he smelt of the cemetery."… “And if a ghost gets hold of a living man, he can force him to be his companion."

    Summary

    There is something appealing about the vision of the pale behind wriggling enticingly in his bed, and Hulot, who has so far chosen to deal with the spy’s machinations by doing his best to ignore his presence, suddenly finds himself wondering whether perhaps a more soldierly discipline might not have been the correct approach in rendering Corentin’s presence slightly less annoying.

    Summary

    “Now, will you tell me your name? Or shall I tell you who I suspect you are?”

    Corentin groaned weakly as a memory brought back the sensation of a large hand clasped over his mouth and nose, cutting off his air.

    “Herrera,” he finally managed to force out, his tongue sluggish and not quite obeying his command yet.

    Summary

    米歇尔·克雷斯蒂安,“雄才大略的共和党人,抱着欧罗巴联邦的梦想,为圣西门运动出过不少力。”在他的形象里,有一部分安灼拉,有一部分公白飞,有一部分乔汉,有一部分费以伊,还有一部分巴奥雷。这还没完,他是在1832年的拉马克起义中去世的。
    把他调去街垒,雨果的书里,这就是这篇同人的背景。
    克雷斯蒂安属于巴尔扎克,其他人属于雨果。既然作者都是朋友,应该不会介意。

    Summary

    “I know how to prove it,” Beau-Pied interrupted, eyes gleaming. “Let’s steal his clothes. If he shows up tomorrow morning in the commander’s old shirt, we’ll know how he spent the night.”

    What's a Parisian dandy like Corentin to do when he loses his clothes in the land of goatskins?

    Summary

    The situation was not exactly free from danger—but all the same, having grasped a glimpse as to the nature of Herrera, Corentin felt more at ease now. It was the unknown that was dangerous. Once he had sounded the hidden depths of a man, time would show opportunities of how to take advantage of his knowledge to bring any enemy to his knees.

    To grovel before Herrera now was a small price to pay, especially for a man like him, who had played worse parts. It would have been a greater pain to come up with money, had Herrera asked for two hundred thousand francs, than to play the penitent on his knees for as long as Herrera liked.
