El Hombre Y La Mujer (Man and Woman) – Victor Hugo / translated

Here is the Spanish translation along with my English version of this original French poem, L’Homme et La Femme, by famous French poet Victor Marie Hugo  (1802 – 1885).  He was a Romantic movement writer. Best known in America as the author of Les Misérables  and The Hunchback of Notre-Dame. He also produced more than 4,000 drawings. I find more beauty in his poems. .
