About the Author
Alexandre Dumas (1802-1870) lived as stormy and romantic a life as that of any of his fictional characters. His father-Napoleon's famous mulatto general, Dumas--died when he was four years old, and Alexandre grew up in poverty. At twenty, he left his small village for Paris, where he launched a writing career that was eventually to produce over two hundred and fifty volumes. It is for his adventure-filled novels-including The Count of Monte Cristo; Queen Margot, and The Three Musketeers and its sequels, Twenty Years After and The Man in the Iron Mask-that Dumas is chiefly remembered.
