I think that the reason there weren't any stars is because it has something to do with his religion. His god could be angry and to show that he doesn't put out the beautiful stars for him to see them . It would make Jean ValJean feel like he was in the darkness for his wrong and that he should confess to his wrong doing .
I think that he would have nothing to look forward to

I think that the candle is like his soul and he blew it out like he blew off Javert by saying that hes not that person that your looking for... The candle is also mentioned for that maybe he needs to tell someone who he really is in life and that some one is coming to tell him something and that scared him because he thought it was Javert who was comeing.

In line 72 it says, "A momment later he blew out his candle.  It bothered him."  No one knew his real identity.  He was in his apartment, which wouldn't be strange to anyone out that late.  So why did he blow the candle out?  Give it some thought and develop some insight into what he was going through.
i think he blew the candle out because the candle resembled his identity and when he blew it out that was him saying if i just keep quiet i wont go to jail.

I think the stars mean that he has not did one thing good yet . If he did do stuff good he would have stars out . if you think about it he stole , he tryed to run away from the chain gang , he stole again from a chimneysweeper , he stole again from the bishop and know he is letting a nice good person that did not do nothin go to jail for his mistake . so that is what i think the stars mean .  ;D

He blew out the candle so that to hope that his concious could not find him. at this point in the story he is thinking just let the other guy go to jail no problem but on the inside Jean is a better man than that. he does not want his concious to find him because he knows that if he thinks about it he will see that he should go to jail seeing how it is his rightfull place to go and not Champmathieus. it was javerts mistake thinking that Cghampmathieu was jean but jean is the one supposed to be in jail so he will have a guilty concious.

I think that the reason he blew the candle out is every time he looked at the flame it reminded him of the bishop& how he was suppose to change his ways . ;D

In lines 97-98 it says, "He went to the window and threw it wide open.  There was not one star in the sky. He went back and sat down by the table."  What was the author's purpose in pointing out that there weren't any stars?
I think the author's purpose was to tell us that the stars were like humans and the window is like a dorr. He opened up the door to the outside and he had noone to turn to and tell his secret to

the author's purpose of pointing out that there were not any stars in the sky was because the stars not being there resembled how he was hiding his true identity from Javert

He felt guilty for not saying anything about the truth, that he was Jean ValJean. It went against his religion for not being honest to the guard and not coming out and telling the truth .
i think he did it to hide
