Review originally published here in at nearly one and a half thousand pages The Mysteries of Paris is an intimidating book by anyone s standards Serialised over a sixteen month period in the 1840s it was a sensation in its day inspiring Victor Hugo s Les Miserables Having never heard of it before I was surprised at how familiar it felt the dark and frightening underbelly of Paris is not so very different from Dickens account of Victorian London the waifs and strays remind me also of Guy de Maupassant s short stories yes half of my degree was in French literature but there is also than a few characters who recall the main players of Hugo s masterpiece However there were also moments of extraordinary darkness moments which reveal a society which still remembers all too well the days of revolutionary lawlessness where the characters know that they can rely on nobody for aid The Mysteries of Paris is almost Shakespearean in the peaks and troughs which it deals out to the protagonistsThe central protagonist is the enigmatic Rodolphe an apparent Parisian worker who is really a German duke in disguise He goes about settling the affairs of the lesser men rescuing those who he feels can be redeemed and punishing those who he judges beyond penitence At the time many Parisian citizens believed that these courts of morality were a good idea so in some ways The Mysteries of Paris presents what was to many an ideal even when at times Rodolphe s methods appear medieval He is aided in his mission by English nobleman Sir Walter Murph and a young ex slave doctor known as David all of whom are individuals truly pure of heart and conscience but overshadowed by the dark memories of old betrayals the true natures of which only become clear as the novel goes onAs a historical piece this is a truly fascinating novel long before Les Miserables Sue reveals the working classes as people and as victims of their inhumane social conditions rather than predisposed to vice The young girl Songbird has fallen into prostitution but it is recognised by those around her that she has had little real option and has been abused by those around her since a child nobody could argue that she is undeserving of her redemption The Slasher is also commended for his overall good heart despite his violent past that he too has had little in the way of positive influences in his life to set him in a better direction Rodolphe s schemes to save the people he meets are occasionally complicated by others but never thwarted giving the book a positive feel despite the horror which it depicts in such detail despite central themes that challenge the overall status uo and which some have argued set the stage for the 1848 revolution this is still a novel with a traditional structure and which finishes with everyone back in their appropriate placesBilled as the first English translation in a century The Mysteries of Paris is not a light read but it has been a worthwhile one It feels like the precursor for so much that came after it inspired a series of novels around the world The Mysteries of New York The Mysteries of London and indeed it does have a Dickensian flavour about it but yet without Dickens tendency to sanitise the working classes While many of Sue s characters do tend towards the caricature and the womenfolk slot stubbornly into either Virgin or Whore with no overlap even the Songbird somehow remains snowy white there is still a sense of these characters as people as citizens and a keener sense of fraternal fellowship than the paternalistic Dickens was ever able to muster Yet despite the over riding moral theme this is also an adventure story with the author being a follower of John Fenni Cooper certainly the sidestreets of Sue s Paris are just as wild as the West of Cooper s frontier fiction Like so much of serialised fiction there are repeated twists turns cliffhangers and shocking revelations enough to keep the reader coming back for all ninety episodes in short like a Victorian television boxed set Too long over shadowed The Mysteries of Paris is well worth picking up the length may be intimidating but don t be fooled this is novel crafted by a master story teller

The New MysteriesMirable dictu a new translation of Eug ne Sue s Myst res de Paris has been published after 171 years Penguin Classics 2015 20 paper 299 Kindle though at 1360 pages maybe you wouldn t want an e book The translators are Carolyn Betensky and Jonathan Loesberg and they have made a creditable job of it In their introduction they spend some time in handwringing over the difficulties of translating the criminal slang thiat Sue made use of in the first part of the book but the translators have made good choicesThe original English translations of the book were made over just three years It is difficult to believe considering the book s unprecedented popularity that it fell so rapidly and thoroughly out of English speaking readers consciousness lets us know that the late 20th century practice of the blockbuster is not as new as we think it is There was something like a media frenzy first serialized in 150 issues over sixteen months in the French newspaper Journal des d bats it was read by everyone from aristocrats to serving girls Agents of English and American publishers bought issues hot from the press shipped them off by fast packet boat to be translated overnight and published the following morning Sue and Dumas the first novelists to work in this new serial medium made fortunes Dickens was publishing serially from 1836 seven years earlier but his work appeared in monthly installments as separate pamphlets Sue s intricate melodrama unfolds around a Paris where despite the gulf between them the fortunes of the rich and poor are inextricably tangled The story of Rodolphe a magnetic hero of noble heart embodied the social and political aspirations of 1843 and the heritage of the 1814 constitutional government culminating in the short lived revolution of 1848 a government in which Sue held a parliamentary seatIn France the book has been continuously in print A biography of Sue by Jean Louis Bory appeared in 1962 It is doubtful whether anyone but the French has heard of either Eug ne Sue or Les Myst res de ParisIt is true that this book is a sentimental melodrama and is fully in the spirit of 1843 in many respects Modern readers will likely find some of its effusion difficult especially the remarks on women its belief in the physiognomy of evil on virtue and other matters But lest anyone doubt Sue s views let her read the perorations on justice p655 659 and on utopia p690 691 Similar passages are scattered throughout the bookA new translation now may be thought something of an oddity However the lurid pulp cover suggests that it is not It certainly is not the decorous presentation of the typical rediscovery of a neglected book Les Myst res is a romp Sue had a talent for keeping multiple story lines in the air at once a talent which stood him well for the creation of a newspaper serial that the reader encounters only one small bit at a time The whole enterprise can t be foreseen in detail by its author who must therefore seed each installment with multiple opportunities for continuation while at the same time introduce no confusion or misdirection for the reader The success of Les Myst res inspired many imitations A comparison with Reynolds The Mysteries of London will reveal within a few pages Sue s deftness in handling a narrative of this sortSue learned his trade through a series of pot boilers over twenty years modeled on the novels of James Feni Cooper These are not unreadable books but they are trivial Then in 1839 with the novel Arthur he began to develop a social awareness of a different order a conscience and sense of duty a sympathy for the poor and oppressed After 1852 with the failure of the revolution and Sue s banishment to the provinces he fell back on the pulp novels of his early career In between were ten years of good stories though none so exhilarating as Les Myst res Arthur Matilde 1841 Paula Monti 1942 The Wandering Jew 1844 Martin the Foundling or the memoirs of a valet d un valet de chamber 1846 The 1844 followup to Les Myst res does test his social consciousness a bit but considering the pervasive anti Semitism always present Sue s effort is not badLes Myst res is as good as anything by Dumas It deserves your attentionStill it s full of 19th century authorial commentary and pulp sentimentality This stuff is not entirely dispensable however For example halfway through the novel buried in a sermon on the goodness of a certain lady is one of Sue s very few remarks on his own craft They would awaken in her he writes sufficient novelistic curiosity and indulgence in mystery unconnected with love to satisfy her imaginative needs her soul and in this manner they would keep her safe from any new love affair This opens a uestion which might puzzle a modern reader what are these mysteries which Paris has over a thousand pages of It is as with the medieval mystery play It is something imaginary because limited humans cannot better understand what is real which we receive in the form of a story concocted by one who is better able to imagine the imaginary and which serves to protect us from lesser forms of vulgar sentiment Regardless of what might think of this formulation and to our minds the hypocrisy of filling the book with the very vulgar sentiment which we are to repudiate the reader must admit that these are high aspirations to learn something of the bits of goodness in everyone and the whodunit of faith Diary of an SM Romance job of it In their introduction they spend some time in handwringing over the
