Links to informative sites on the rich
history and inner symbolism of Notre Dame.
Links to various biographies on the
author of the book, Victor Hugo. Very important for
understanding the context of the novel.
Links page to other sites (which may
themselves be gateways) containing a *ton* of info on Medieval
history. If you're here for this, good luck.
Still under construction. May
someday help as a visual guide to the important events in the novel.
Created by a friend (Chris Waelchli),
this little shockwave is meant to amuse and distract. You'll
love it. Trust me.
Synopses and some analyses of various
movie and theater adaptations of Notre Dame de Paris. Should
also include images someday.
Links to other HoND/NDDP sites, official
or otherwise, and just any random site I happen to like offhand.

This site is dedicated to the
classic novel by Victor Hugo, Notre-Dame de Paris (known as
The Hunchback of Notre Dame in the English version). By the
time I finish with this site (if I ever finish with it), it
should prove as a useful guide both in reading the book and in
learning about the book. However, I shall warn you, most
everything on this site is filled with spoilers. I'll
designate anything that doesn't have spoilers as
What? You were

Updated May 29,
section for previous updates
Okay, the renovation didn't
happen as planned. I have an updated Phoebus page, but since
that was over a year ago, you all probably know that.
Some would say I should just give this website up as defunct,
seeing as I haven't written anything terribly important in
about...four years. Geez...a lot of years.
But I *hate* giving up on stuff. I don't know about y'all,
but the wonder that is NDDP *must* go on. So here's the
deal: I do have some updated formats for the webpages. The
likelihood that I'll ever add new adaptation synopses is
*pretty* slim (meaning that the Disney HoND will die quickly
in obscurity -- of course). And the fabulous EggShell Frollo
of the Patinkin version will go unrecognized.
Who played him, again? Richard...something. Geez, four
Anyway, the info pages will stay as they are. There's no need
to rehash a Hugo bio, the Notre Dame page already gets more
hits a day than any other page, and I can't possibly say
everything that needs to be said in Medieval Times.
The problem that rests now is that I don't know what to update
anymore. Well, that and I HATE FRIGGIN PAGEBUILDER AARRRGH!!
But mostly I don't know what to update. Or maybe I don't know
where to start. So with that in mind, I have now created
MY VERY OWN SITE-BLOG
Meaning you can post suggestions, comments, questions,
critiques, whatever you want!!
As long as it's just a comment to one of my entries. Yahoo
doesn't seem to allow community blogs like LJ.
