This is a wonderful thread!! I'm currently looking for an English translation of Les Mis. I'm not sure if I'm allowed to ask here so if it is inappropriate please feel free to ignore or delete this.
I want to choose one from Wilbour, Wraxall, Richmond and Hapgood.
English is not my native language so basically I want to find a translation that is easier to read, vocabulary- and grammar-wise.
Also I want good translations of puns and all of the humor.
I'm not very familiar with European history so I don't mind some footnotes on historical facts, as long as they aren't unduly long.
Could you please give me some suggestions? Which translation should I read? Thank you for your kindness
