who apparently fell in love with a beautiful young woman trying to sacrifice his life several times for her, It seems that the love of a man to a woman and the writer rose in his ability in describing these feelings, however, the hunchback with his disability, denial and oppression which he suffered from them, fell in love with the warmth of human beauty deprived of him (and also in his inner depths) ,a beauty appeared in front of him in the form of a woman who didn’t make fun of his disability or mutilation of his body, and not just the love of a man to a woman.

 The purpose of his sacrifices was to keep this charming beauty alive, so that he would not be deprived of it. He realized that if his ugly body shape perished ,this would mean the continuity of his beautiful humanity’s deep warm soul  to stay. Our novel hero has been sheltered away behind the walls of the cathedral, isolated from the world, incapable of any external contact, as a symbol of the impotence that distanced it from the world and as a sign of a society that isolates and hides the disabilities, despises the weak and destroys the disadvantaged. And the main reason for that is the authority ruling this society. AS a result ,our hero turned into a non-existent entity and he was unable to act until the unexpected spark started to re-illuminate his life again , this spark was  this charming woman.
