Works inspired by Hugo

Postby 23623 » Fri Jan 06, 2017 4:19 am

Sorry if this already exists. I originally posted it in the '93 thread but it didn't really fit. So...I just discovered that the protagonist of "The man who laughs" is the inspiration of a supervillain in DC comics. I haven't seen anything of DC but am very curious how they managed to work the inspiration of a Hugo protagonist into a supervillain. :shock: As for '93, it's said that the novel has inspired Ayn Rand's writing. God why? They differ greatly in both philosophy and writing style. :shock: And I really can't accept the fact that Ayn Rand is a Hugo fan because she's one of my least favorite writers. Apparently inspiration works in a weird way.

So does anyone know about other works inspired by Hugo? How do you like them?

Ayn Rand seems like the complete opposite of Victor Hugo.
Don't mess with Texas! We mess up enough by ourselves.
I have actually made bullets like they're doing in my avatar. Then loaded the gun with a ramrod, and shot it. But I'm not feeling real good about guns right now.

True! I literally posted the same thing in the '93 thread. Hugo writes with empathy, Rand writes with condescension. I really, really don't get just what part of her writing is inspired by Hugo. :roll:
