Enjolras doesn't notice the choice of verb tense. This is because no other alternative would occur to him. So long as he is himself in any sense, he is of France; death changes nothing of that.
"Yes. It's a strange collection of people to be brought here; I've found no clear pattern in it."
He speaks because he is not so rude as to not make at least some perfunctory conversation back, although he doesn't expect her to be able to shed any light on the subject. No one else has been able to, although some of them have offered philosophies as meaninglessly cynical as any of Grantaire's.
"Still, at times there are benefits. Your brother was able to give me news of France's future, and I'm grateful for it."
Deeply so -- admittedly, in significant part because of the nature of that news.
France is a republic, a true one, at peace with its neighbors and secure in the enfranchisement of its citizenry. Nothing means more to Enjolras than that.
