Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Deep inside the dreaded Bastille, a young prisoner has languished, his face hidden from all, for eight long years. He knows neither his true identity nor the crime that got him there. Then Aramis, one of the original three musketeers—the finest swordsmen in all of France—bribes his way into the young mans cell to reveal the shocking truth. The revelation of this truth could very well topple Louis XIV, King of France, from his throne—and Aramis aims to do just that.

But a daring jailbreak, a brilliant masquerade, and a bloody fight for the throne may make Aramis betray his sacred vow of “All for one, one for all.” And in so doing, he will pit musketeer against musketeer, bringing an end to this swashbuckling saga—and either honor or disgrace upon them all.…

“The name Alexandre Dumas is more than French—it is universal.”—Victor Hugo

With a New Introduction by Roger Celestin and an Afterword by Jack Zipes

 

Synopsis:

In the post-Napoleonic era, Edmond Dantès, a young sailor from Marseilles, is poised to become captain of his own ship and to marry his beloved. But spiteful enemies provoke his arrest, condemning him to lifelong imprisonment. Then Edmonds sole companion in prison reveals his secret plan of escape and a letter with directions to hidden riches on the island of Monte Cristo—a treasure trove that will eventually fund Edmunds dream of creating a new identity for himself: the mysterious and powerful Count of Monte Cristo.

In The Count of Monte Cristo, Alexandre Dumas employed all the elements of compelling drama—suspense, intrigue, love, vengeance, rousing adventure, and the triumph of good over evil—that contribute to this classic storys irresistible and timeless appeal.

Synopsis:

Wrongfully imprisoned for fourteen years, Edmond Dantes escapes to the island of Monte Cristo. What awaits him there is a fortune in gold-and a new identity with which to persue his revenge and redemption.

About the Author

Alexandre Dumas was born July 24, 1802, at Villiers-Cotterets, France, the son of Napoleon's famous mulatto general, Thomas-Alexandre Dumas, who eventually fell from favor and died impoverished when his son was only four. Alexandre Dumas began writing at an early age and saw his first success in a play he wrote entitled Henri III et sa Cour (1829). A prolific author who also had to battle racism throughout his life, Dumas was politically active, taking part in the Revolution of 1830 and later working for the  cause of Italian unification. Among his most famous historical novels, which he often wrote with collaborators (primarily Auguste Maquet) and which were typically serialized in the press, are The Three Musketeers (1844), The Count of Monte Cristo (1844-45), and The Man in the Iron Mask (1848-50). Dumas made and lost several fortunes, and died penniless on December 5, 1870.
