The Hunchback from Notre Dame is written by Victor Hugo. It was printed in 1831. Quasimode is love with Esmeralda the Gypsy. She is kind to him, by offering him a drink when he was in the stock a form public punishment. The setting is the same in Paris but in 1482 awhile the Phantom is 1880s'. They are similar Quasimode is physically deformed with a hunchback, he mentally not a genius like Erik in the Phantom of the Opera. He is not really in love with Esmeralda, he is grateful toward her and is too mentally handicap to be physically in love with her. He wants is a friend. He saves her life from the cruel priest who accuses her of being a witch and a murderess.

Lon Chaney portrayed both the Hunchback and the Phantom. The Hunchback set was used for the Phantom of the Opera two years later, making Lon Chaney a superstar and a makeup artist legend The Man With the Thousand Faces.

Gaston Leroux studied Victor Hugo's Hunchback of Notre Dame that he was inspired by the Beauty, Ugly and the Shunned. He created the Phantom of the Opera in 1909.
