I noticed an interesting thing about Marius in the musical.
If you look at everything he sings in show, it is ALWAYS either about people (usually specific people, as opposed to Enjolras’ general), or abstract concepts/emotions in relation to his own feelings. He also says people’s names even more than Javert says his own. He seems to have no emotions or thoughts not caused by PEOPLE.
Until the barricade scene, he never, ever, ever sings anything about the world in which he’s living— the physical landscape, the suffering of the people around him, even inanimate objects— until after Eponine’s death, when he sings “I will go into the street, there are bodies all around, ammunition to be had, lots of bullets to be found.”
Eponine, on the other hand, is very ‘material’ in her language— she has to be, because her life is mainly focused on survival. She describes landscapes and physical objects, and uses them to relate her emotions. Only after Eponine dies and Marius feels there’s no hope of being reunited with Cosette does he actually see the physical WORLD and not just his landscape of ideals.
This is what makes Empty Chairs at Empty Tables so heartbreaking. It’s the first time he really gives a description of a physical place, of inanimate objects, and that’s only BECAUSE there are no people to fill it. He contrasts the present painful reality of the empty space full of chairs and tables, with his memories— all of which are of his friends and idealistic abstract concepts.
did you know that a big group of young people who are forced to sit silent for a long time begin to sound like a forest at some point of time
did you know that for every living person there are twenty ghosts
