So there was some Czech production of Les Mis that featured Enjolras rabidly losing all sense of decency.
that’s certainly a DIFFERENT interpretation of the character
SOMEONE PLEASE EXPLAIN WHAT IS GOING ON?!? Did they need a white flag of truce and HIS SHIRT WAS THE ONLY OPTION?
This is hilarious, and someone needs to do a cartoon addressing the matter. [cracks up]
I….WHAT? Go home Enjolras, you are drunk.
The roll was called. One of the insurgents was missing. And who was it? One of the dearest. One of the most valiant. Jean Prouvaire. He was sought among the wounded, he was not there. He was sought among the dead, he was not there. He was evidently a prisoner. Combeferre said to Enjolras:—
"They have our friend; we have their agent. Are you set on the death of that spy?"
"Yes," replied Enjolras; "but less so than on the life of Jean Prouvaire."
This took place in the tap-room near Javert’s post.
"Well," resumed Combeferre, "I am going to fasten my handkerchief to my cane, and go as a flag of truce, to offer to exchange our man for theirs."
"Listen," said Enjolras, laying his hand on Combeferre’s arm. "Your handkerchief will not be big enough. For Jean Prouvaire I would give the shirt off my back."
"Oh," said Combeferre, as Enjolras abruptly disrobed. "That was not a metaphor."
