on abridgment:

i am currently reading an abridged version of les misérables. i like that the careful selection of omissions means that everything included in this version of the text is very intentional. nothing superfluous. i don't like that i will never know how the "short-winded, pot bellied Basque whom we have already mentioned" was initially introduced to the reader. he sounds like my kind of guy.
