The election of Victor Hugo at the Académie française was the result of a prolonged campaign that exposed the poet to several. His perseverance is a sign of the importance that the author of the Preface to Cromwell attached to academic consecration. The way Hugo reports himself to the Académie helps to understand the relationship of poetry and power in the poet's work. There is a link between the increase of the poet’s academic ambitions and the rise of the theme of a classical past, modeled on classical antiquity and on the French seventeenth century.
