Ella R. Shaeffer, "The Drama of the Ages". Remember Paul Adam and his published Hugo/Balzac crossover fic? This book is at least as bizarre, but in an altogether less adorable way.
What we have here is an ostensibly rather ambitious project covering 'more than four thousand years of time', bringing 'to view the fact of one continued conflict throughout all the ages'. Note also that 'the following pages are for the most part authentic history'. It features, amongst other things, a demoiselle called Evadne (like the one whose bare throat would not have moved Enjolras) and her beloved, a 1830s law student named Jehan, who is associated with a group called the A. B. Z., which, following Lamarque's funeral, builds a barricade in the Rue de la Hanverie. Yes. Now look at this (taken from a chapter called "Passing Gleams"):
All at once he mounted a stone post; he threw back his head, his abundant dark locks fell back like the mane of a startled lion in the flaming of a halo; a sort of stifled fire darted from his eyes which were filled with an inward look.
The sentence structure's moved around, the hair colour has changed (chacun à son goût), but still I doubt that 'like the mane of a startled lion in the flaming of a halo' was an awfully popular comparison back in the day. No, the passage is certainly a twin of this:
A sort of stifled fire darted from his eyes, which were filled with an inward look. All at once he threw back his head, his blond locks fell back like those of an angel on the sombre quadriga made of stars, they were like the mane of a startled lion in the flaming of an halo [...]
and you can actually find half-sentences of I. F. Hapgood's Les Mis translation in every other sentence - the above is immediately preceded by a variation on
The situation of all in that fatal hour and that pitiless place, had as result and culminating point Enjolras' supreme melancholy.
The situation of Jehan in that fatal hour and pitiless place, had as a result a culminating point in the supreme sadness of his lost love.
(Evadne's mother, having found out that Jehan is 'a profane irreligious youth' who has been seen 'deliberating with the revolutionists', has informed her that they can never marry, so she, in turn, informed him that they must part forever. Evadne later appears at the barricades in male attire, as far as I can gather.) Jehan then proceeds to give a long speech which is a sort of mixture between this bit from "The Extreme Edge":
Down with the tyrant! Of whom are you speaking? Do you call Louis Philippe the tyrant? No; no more than Louis XVI. Both of them are what history is in the habit of calling good kings; but principles are not to be parcelled out, the logic of the true is rectilinear, the peculiarity of truth is that it lacks complaisance; no concessions, then; all encroachments on man should be repressed. There is a divine right in Louis XVI., there is because a Bourbon in Louis Philippe; both represent in a certain measure the confiscation of right, and, in order to clear away universal insurrection, they must be combated; it must be done, France being always the one to begin.
and bits and pieces from the Declaration of Independence (there is at least one scene in which Jehan, seeking to defeat his Supreme Sadness etc., closed his eyes and thought of America, so to speak) eventually leading into an adaptation of Enjolras' own speech again mixed with earlier parts (e.g. 'Love, thine is the future' from the Le Cabuc scene). Is it a madlib? Is it postmodern collage art? There are several other non-barricadous chapters which I have only skimmed so far but which definitely likewise feature Misérable passages; the "Evadne" chapter includes chunks of "Waterloo", pieces on Evadne's and Jehan's romance that smell more than a little of Marius and Cosette (also, there is a sub-chapter called "Shadows and Desolations", compare with "Enchantments and Desolations") as well as Jehan's relations with a semi-Courfeyrac called Charles (who is re-encountered on June 5 leading a pack of students and shouting 'Ho-hee!', and who gets some Enjolras moments, too, such as that in which he informs the rest that 'there is nothing to expect; nothing to hope for, neither from a faubourg nor from a regiment, you are abandoned' - taken verbatim from Hapgood's "Light and Shadow"):
In this law school was a young man who belonged to the A. B. Z., his name was Charles. Now Jehan and Charles became fast freinds. There is in the soul of some youth that innocent, that magnificent something, in the presence of which political opinions and religious prejudice appear very petty and mean. The first time Jehan and Charles looked at each other, their countenances chattered and told all [...]
comparable with the way Marius appears to Courfeyrac (and/or vice versa):
In a few days, Marius had become Courfeyrac's friend. [...] There are young men of whom it can be said that their countenances chatter.
In case you were wondering, incidentally,
There was one group of minds more serious, not organized, all young men, the direct sons of the Revolution. It mattered not to them what their parents were; royalists, Bonapartists, Liberals or Democrats; they attached themselves without an intermediate shade, to incorruptible right, and to absolute duty. They fathomed principles, they longed for the absolute. The pure blood of principle flowed in their veins. They caught glimpses of infinite realities, the absolute by its very rigidty urges the mind towards the skies, and makes it soar in the boundless. This group often solicited Monsieur Cammille to speak to them which was a great pleasure to him.
This group was designated the A. B. Z.
which is close to
Other groups of minds were more serious. In that direction, they sounded principles, they attached themselves to the right. They grew enthusiastic for the absolute, they caught glimpses of infinite realizations; the absolute, by its very rigidity, urges spirits towards the sky and causes them to float in illimitable space.
(perhaps this was ripping off another translation, Wilbour's, maybe?)
and in the earlier "An Illustrious Frenchman" (the man in question being that Monsieur Cammille, who is also Evadne's father), it says
In 1817 Monsieur Henri Cammille, who lived in Paris, was at that age when men who think have great depth and ingenuousness.
which is what Hugo likes to tell us about Marius:
He was at that period of life when the mind of men who think is composed, in nearly equal parts, of depth and ingenuousness.
and then it just stops making any sense whatsoever:
At the time of a profound and powerful movement made essential by the study of the Middle Ages, Monsieur Cammille read the histories, the memoirs, the bulletins, the proclamations; he devoured everything [...]
being a composition of Jehan (ours, that is):
petty momentary freak which mingled with the powerful and profound movement whence sprang the very essential study of the Middle Ages
and again Marius:
He read the Moniteur, he read all the histories of the Republic and the Empire, the Memorial de Sainte-Helene, all the memoirs, all the newspapers, the bulletins, the proclamations; he devoured everything.
What is fascinating is that it isn't a coherent block of stolen next with names (and hair colours) replaced but all these stolen half-phrases stirred and shaken and sprinkled all over the place. It's as if ... as if Thénardier had decided to clean up Combeferre's apartment after the barricade, found his manuscript for "Les Misérables", and, rearranging the scraps as he saw fit and adding a few gratuitous touches of dimestore sentiment in honour of his late wife, decided to make his own career in socially and philosophically aware literature. (This would also explain why 'ABC' became 'ABZ'.)
ETA: OH AND ALSO Jehan's royalist father is called Lenormand or Lenormond.
