Product Description

17th century France: Young D'Artagnan leaves his home and travels to Paris with dreams of joining The Musketeers of Guard—the glamourous and gallant group of men who guard Louis XIII, the King of France. There he meets Athos, Porthos and Aramis, the three best musketeers and inseparable friends who believe with all their heart in the words 'all for one, one for all.' D'Artagnan rents an apartment above the shop of one Monsieur Bonacieux, hoping to settle into Parisian life and become a proper musketeer quickly.

What the young and gallant D'Artagnan does not realise is that he has, inadvertently, landed himself in the very centre of one of the foulest conspiracies in monarchist France.

There are love affairs and intrigues, ambushes and wild rides, duels and murders. And as the famous American author and editor Clifton Fadiman says, 'it is all impossible and it is all magnificient.'

About Author

Alexandre Dumas (père) lived a life as romantic as that depicted in his famous novels. He was born on July 24,1802, at Villers-Cotterêts, France, the son of Napoleon’s famous mulatto general, Dumas, His early education was scanty, but his beautiful handwriting secured him a position in Paris in 1822 with the du’Orléans, where he read voraciously and began to write. His first play, Henri III et sa cour (1829), scored a resounding success for its author and for the romantic movement. Numerous dramatic successes followed (including the melodrama Kean , later adapted by Jean-Paul Satre), and so did numerous mistresses and adventures. He took part in the revolution of 1830 and caught cholera during the epidemic of 1832, fathered two illegitimate children by two different mistresses, and then married still another mistress. (The first of these two children, Alexandre Dumas, [fils], became a famous author also,) His lavish spending and flamboyant habits led to the construction of his fabulous Château de Monte-Christo, and in 1851 he fled to Belgium to escape creditors. He died on December 5, 1870, bankrupt but still cheerful, saying of death, “I shall tell her a story, and she will be kind to me.” Dumas’s overall literary output reached over 277 volumes, but his brilliant historical novels made him the most universally read of all French novelists. With collaborators, mainly Auguste Maquet, Dumas wrote such works as The Three Musketeer (1843-44); its sequels, Twenty Years After (1845) and the great mystery The Man in the Iron Mask (1845-50); and The Count of Monte Cristo (1844). L’action and l’amour were the two essential things in life and his fiction. He declared he “elevated history to the dignity of the novel” by means of love affairs, intrigues, imprisonments, hairbreadth escapes, and duels. His work ignored historical accuracy, Psychology, and analysis, but its thrilling adventure and exuberant inventiveness continue to delight readers, and Dumas remains one of the prodigies of nineteenth-century French literature.
